Synopsis

Deeply influenced by French trumpeter Stéphane Belmondo's musical tribute to Chet Baker, Love for Chet, Joe Lee shares his intimate connection with this significant and personal music that supported him through isolated and reflective parts of his life. In an evening of sentimental expression with his drum-less guitar trio, he will be joined by Wei Xiang Tan on trumpet/flugelhorn and Judy Tsai on upright bass. The trio will present both standards as well as lesser-known tunes including the French song La chanson d'Hélène.
