Jazz guitarist Lee Jones has recorded 6 albums with former WEA producer Simon Tittley since 2007. His debut album 'Swish' was reviewed by Dave Gelly of The Observer and featured NYJO and Ronnie Scott's house drummer, the late Chris Dagley.
Lee's second album 'Songs From The 13th Hour' was given a 3 Star review by Jazzwise Magazine and was also reviewed in the London Evening Standard by the late Jack Massarik. Musicians contributing to the album included American jazz guitar legend Larry Coryell and saxophonist Jean Toussaint.
Lee's third album 'After The Pier' was reviewed by Keith Ames of Musician Magazine. It featured former Maceo Parker sideman, trombonist Dennis Rollins and Scottish violinist Rab Handleigh.
His 2018 and 2020 albums, 'St Owens Sessions' and 'A New Standard' are solo guitar arrangements of classic jazz repertoire. 'Night Train', from 2019, is an avant-garde inspired recording, exploring alternative timbres and sounds. Lee is scheduled to release 'Night Train Part II' in 2021.
