About the album
"Lights“ features six original compositions by Lee, one („Pirate Bay“) by the trio plus „My Cherie Amour“ by Stevie Wonder. She dedicated „Nu“ to Esbjörn Svensson. And this also can be taken as a guideline, as Lee plays her unique style based on Jazz, subtly flavoured with elements of Pop and Soul. The other trio members are more than just sidemen. Listen to the distinct rhythmic playing of drummer Sebastian Merk, or the full supporting sound of Jens Loh's double bass – and you immediately feel an intimacy paired with power that fears no comparisons.
