Trumpeter Cliff Lee is an exemplar of classic jazz, and a Brooklyn mainstay. He grew up in Snow Hill, Alabama, and has carried on the legacy of his musical family–his grandfather founded a music school, and all of Cliff’s six siblings played instruments, among them his brother Bill Lee, the well known bassist and composer (and father of director Spike Lee). As a longtime music educator, Cliff has mentored many, including the great Arthur Rhames, and he is respected among musicians for his wisdom and sense of swing.
This event will stream on the Jazz Foundation and Jazz Museum Facebook pages and the Museum YouTube Channel.
