Primary Instrument: Sax, soprano

Dee Lucas

Soprano saxophonist Dee Lucas’s newest CD Something To Ride 2 is a smooth jazz classic in the making. With the breakout hits Bayou and Chameleon leading the way, Something To Ride 2 lends to a perfect musical getaway, with a refreshing selection of songs that are smooth and mellow, yet tinged with an urban, funky flavor. Lucas’ second CD is set for release April 16, 2007, on the independent label Mo Better Recordings.

“I am pleased with ‘Something To Ride 2,’ said Dee. “I wanted a CD that people could groove to and have fun listening to and ‘Something To Ride 2” fits the bill. It’s a departure from what I did on my first CD, ‘Remembrance.’ With this record I wanted to further develop my own distinctive sound as a solo artist. My style, from a horn perspective, is different from that of many traditional smooth jazz artists in terms of timbre and tone.

Something To Ride 2 is rich, tasty, classy, and I could just keep adding positives! This truly is a first-rate collection of soprano sax-driven music, and it should indeed be a breakout release for Mr. Lucas. There’s not one throwaway track on this disc, with the hits “Bayou” and the cover of Herbie Hancock’s “Chameleon” (including a bonus mix) in the forefront. Speaking of covers, Dee’s takes on Kem’s “I Can’t Stop Loving You” and Brian McKnight’s “Never Felt This Way” are exceptional. This is just a quality outing from first note to last… smooth and mellow, with an understated urban funk groove as a foundation...
