Album Notes

Lady Blues Piano, Miss Lee has been enchanting the blues fan in her native Japan and the U.S. for 10 years. She visits Chicago every year for the blues fest, where she met the Grammy-winning drummer Kenny “Beedy Eye” Smith, who invited her on the sight to play with his band Cash Box Kings. The encounter lead to another and after a while, she found herself in the rich circle of gifted musicians who carries on the true spirit of the Chicago blues. In March 2014, Miss Lee recorded her first leader album in Chicago to showcase her friends’ great talent, along with her own.

“I wanted everybody to know that there is a living tradition of old-school Chicago blues, vibrant and on-going, carried on by amazing musicians” ---- Miss Lee

This album not only uncovers Miss Lee, the rising star of the blues piano, but also the new era of the Chicago blues: timeless, universal and profoundly respected by music fans of all generations and ethnic backgrounds.

Miss Lee happily calls herself “a blues purist” and often quotes one of her idols Otis Spann’s saying: “Blues Never Die.”
Her music is enough to prove it true.
