Amy Lee

Jazz saxophonist, composer and arranger Amy Lee has been on the national/ international music scene since 1990. Her newly released solo CD titled USE ME marks her 2nd solo album and is currently being sold exclusively at her website Amy LeeSax.com. The accomplished musicians backing Amy on USE ME have recorded with hundreds of artists including Earth, Wind & Fire, Steely Dan, Marvin Gaye, Luther Vandross, David Sanborn, Kenny G, the Temptations, Quincy Jones, George Benson, David Bowie and Stevie Wonder. USE ME is filled with feel-good songs and soulful soloing that is unique to tthe “Smooth Jazz” monotony of today. That is because her years playing with Charles Neville of the Neville Brothers and Jimmy Buffett have brought to her palette a distinctive blend of jazz, funk and storytelling which is undeniably weaved into her music and playing. Producer/engineer Steve Schwartzberg also brings his pop/R&B skills to the project having worked with such artists as Toni Braxton, TLC, and Boyz II Men. The resulting instrumental jazz-pop-soul mix is incredibly fresh and fun. The album contains 7 original compositions and 3 covers including Bill Withers' “Use Me” as well as Stevie Wonder's “Too Shy To Say.” It is sure to become a favorite in your CD collection. USE ME ships immediately....
