Product Description

Carrying on in the proud tradition of Cleveland-born jazz musicians from Tadd Dameron to Joe Lovano, Cleveland-native, New York-based multi-saxophonist, composer and educator Mike Lee tours presents a contagious musical picture of his home turf and jazz's tradition.

Top-flight NY sidemen improvisers pianist Matt Ray, guitarist John Hart, bassist Andy McKee, drummer Tim Horner and special guest violinist Rebecca Harris ignite bop cookers to Latin grooves to down-home blues to a breathy "Stardust."   Jazz lovers will make Mike Lee's backyard their own and will keep coming back just to "hang."  You dig?


"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

"An inventive improviser, ideas flow from [Lee's] horn in great profusion." --—Harvey Pekar, JazzTimes

"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,
