Lee Goodness Lee Goodness

I have been playing drums professionally for over 39 years.

During that time, I have played just about every style of music, i.e. rock, blues, jazz, country, gospel, folk etc.

I have national and international touring experience with both Chuck Leavell and Curtis Mayfield. While with Curtis, I did 6 European tours including the Montreux Jazz Festival in Switzerland, Expo '90 in Japan, and toured extensively within the US. In addition, I performed in “live” TV and radio broacasts and video taping.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
