As a studio musician, performer, educator, and composer, Benjamin Lee is fiercely dedicated to artistic excellence, professionalism, and community.  

The word

"There have been those who have been based more in the groove traditions of players like James Jamerson, those who lean more toward the straight ahead stylings of folks like Ron Carter or Charles Mingus, and then there are the cats who show skill in both camps.
Ben is one such cat..." (full testimonial)
-- Ricky Carter
Session Drummer, Producer

"A solid anchor both musically and as a person [...] Ben puts the right energy into every note. Great technique and intonation, shows up on time, knows the music... He is flexible and chill to work with. Highly recommend him for jazz and more!" (full testimonial)
-- Jeff Worrall
Trumpet/Educator

"As for as music instructors go, Ben Lee is hands down at the top of the list. He has been instructing our 8th grade son for a year now on upright bass and we've seen my sons technical abilities and music theory grow at an astonishing rate..." (full testimonial) 
-- Johnny Jones, Parent

"...He always shows up more prepared then anyone else, and shreds the charts on anything that's put in front of him. I wish I had an extra band so that I could hire him full-time!" (full testimonial)
