All About Jazz.com · Cleveland Scene · Jazziz ·

· JazzTimes
  • "This gifted composer and masterful saxophonist has crafted tunes of character, 
    lilt, and elegance, buoying them with his fat back, velvety saxophone."
    —Carlo Wolff, Jazziz (February 2001)
  • "An inventive improviser, ideas flow from [Lee's] horn in great profusion."
    —Harvey Pekar, JazzTimes (March 2001)
  • "The saxophonist has been gaining a reputation as one of the — baddest — improvisers on the scene which was evidenced on his brand new release, titled My Backyard."
    —Glenn Astarita, AllAboutJazz.com
  • "Lee's sound and his songs — which range from the relaxed and lyrical to the almost politely angular — get plenty of center-stage time on his forthcoming album, My Backyard."
    —Aaron Steinberg, Cleveland Scene
  • "Altogether, a commendable mainstream-modern session nicely balancing improvisation and compostion."
    —Barry Witherden, Jazz Review (May 2001)
