Miss Sophie Lee Miss Sophie Lee

Born and raised in the Chicago area, Miss Sophie Lee moved to New Orleans in 2001 in search of its rich musical and culinary culture. She quickly found Frenchmen Street and the New Orleans Jazz Vipers who along with Bart Ramsey, collaborated with her on her first New Orleans self-titled CD in 2006.

In the Summer and Fall of 2009, Sophie, Bart and members of the Jazz Vipers (now called “The New Orleans Cottonmouth Kings”) collaborated again for another Miss Sophie Lee CD, “Tallulah Moon.” This time around they are joined by a stellar group of New Orleans musicians including “Washboard” Chaz Leary, St. Louis Slim, Andy J. Forest, Bruce Brackman, Charlie Fardella, Robert Snow, John Rodli, Matt Rhody, Matt Johnson, Matt Bell, Tommy Sciple and Glen David Andrews.

“Tallulah Moon,” named for Miss Sophie Lee's Grandmothers home town in Louisiana and Miss Sophie's mother, Moon Ja, features nine standards and one original tune, the title track, “Tallulah Moon” written by Miss Sophie Lee.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
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.
