I first met Lee Smith back in November, as we were the first two people to show up to the studio for the Symphony in Bossa sessions (more on that soon). Of course, I knew about Lee Smith. He’s played with so many great musicians, and has been a mainstay in the Philly Jazz Scene for a long time. Plus, his son also happens to be a killer player.
Lee recently contacted me about doing some work together, particularly about producing an EPK. I really like the format of the EPK – it gives you a lot of info about an artist in a short and easily digestible time frame. Plus, it gave me a chance to sit down with Lee and talk about different aspects of his life and thoughts on music. I really enjoyed producing this piece for him, and hope to work with him again soon.
