TUESDAY NIGHT OA2 22111 “...Lee's own inventive, often virtuosic, improvisations are uniquely his own...” - CADENCE Since 1998, pianist Gordon Lee has been a mainstay with drummer Mel Brown's hard- swinging sextet as they've played to packed rooms every Tuesday Night at Jimmy Mak's in downtown Portland for over 17 years, which may be some kind of modern day record for a 7 piece jazz band. Known for its adherence to the "hard bop" sounds of Art Blakey, Horace Silver and Wayne Shorter, Lee's compositions follow in that style, but with new 21st-century twists. His first recording with the band, "Gordon Bleu," led to them winning the 1989 Hennessy Jazz Search, where they beat out 700 other groups from around the world. "Tuesday Night" on OA2 records is the long-overdue second recording of this inspired, soulful band and a tribute to the enduring legacy of drummer & bandleader, Mel Brown. The Septet will have a CD release party for “Tuesday Night” on Tuesday night Sep. 23rd at Jimmy Mak’s, NW 10th and Everett, at 8:00. Minors are welcome til 9:30. cover or for admission and a CD. - See more at: http://originarts.com/oa2/recordings/recording.php? TitleID=22111#sthash.KwgNwBqL.dpuf
