Saxophonist Matt Lee was inspired for the music in his youth by his grandmother who bought him a saxophone in 1997. As self taught musician he is active in the music business since the early 2000's. He is influenced by artists such as Grover Washington Jr., Kenny G or James Brown. He will release his first album entitled Never Too Late in April 2022. 

The EP consists of four tracks, the songs One More Kiss and First Glance are produced by Jeffrey Carruthers and mixed and mastered by Euge Groove. Artists on these tracks are Eric Valentine (drums), Darryl Williams (bass), Jeffrey Carruthers (keys, guitar) and Matt Lee on sax. The tracks Spanish Skies and Let's Chill Tonight are produced, arranged, mixed, and mastered by Matt Lee.

The album opens with Spanish Skies that can easily be passed off as a showpiece. Multi-instrumentalist Lee presents a coherent arrangement, with balanced instrumentation and an engaging melody. Above all, his tenor saxophone dominates, developing rich sound structures.

For his track One More Kiss, Lee has been able to recruit experienced musicians who can boast a good name in the smooth jazz business. So he immediately catches up with the level we are used to from top musicians. The song will be released on all radio stations in March 2022.

You don't have to play fast to stand out. Matt shows us with Let's Chill Tonight that even with slow atmospheric music, the subtle, nuanced can convince. The best comes at last. First Glance rewards us with an emotional melody, with Matt connecting to a known song in the chorus. The duet with Jeff Carruthers on guitar is priceless.

With his debut album Never Too Late, Matt Lee deserves our full respect and appreciation. What a brilliant start!
