Lee, Peggy Band

Lee, Peggy Band (Spool)
Label: Spool    
Released in: Canada    

"Not so long ago, the cello was one instrument left out on the doorstep of jazz, if not most improvised musics. But times have changed!

"With her ddeply sonorous instrument in hand, Lee has more-than-shared the stage with creative improvisors from all over the world: Joelle Leandre, Dave Douglas, Mark Dresser, Susie Ibarra, and Barre Phillips to name but a few. Her playing blends grace and precision, yet when the music demands it she can be equally challenging and vibrant."-Jon Morgan, Signal to Noise
