Burnside Album Details
Lie, Terje, Traveler
Out of Norway, Terje Lie (pronounced Terry Lee), who now makes his home in Los Angeles, assembles a great line-up and some solid material for his latest CD Traveler. The CD features all original compositions. This contemporary jazz collection contains catchy melodies with uplifting grooves interspersed with laid-back, reflective, and romantic tracks. The saxophonist, singer, and melody-maker supreme hooks up with some of Los Angeles’ heavyweight musicians, including David Garfield on keyboards (Michael McDonald, George Benson, Earl Klugh, Dianne Reeves), Ernest Tibbs on bass (Natalie Cole, the Tonight Show), and Jeff Olson on drums (David Benoit). Terje Lie's playing lends a jazz-approach to some commercial and danceable grooves. In addition to the instrumentals, Terje performs vocals on two of the tracks.
