商品説明

To call Enoch Lee a musician would be selling him short. With two music degrees under his belt Lee is taking on the world as a true artist who happens to operate through the medium of music. Through his hours of education and practice he has discovered, music spans much further than skill and technical abilities on the instrument. Music for Lee holds the ability to capture raw emotion and beauty to then be adapted to a universal language for everyone to understand. This ability obviously fascinates Lee, who does not take this potential lightly. From speaking with Enoch Lee it appears every little detail on his new album Finish Line has been thought out. Musicians were carefully chosen for their stylistic strengths and capabilities to communicate through provocation. Each tune was composed with a strong message or story and the album as a whole is meant to link together to present a larger message. The music was built around Lee's vision or picture. To maintain no emotion was lost in translation Lee would visualize what he felt and sing the parts and lines to later be arranged and be recorded by instruments. The opening track Remember The End acts as an overture for the album, introducing the rhythm section as drums, piano, bass and guitar gel over a vamp. The piece fades, only to introduce the vamp at a faster tempo and greater intensity as the album launches into In The Battle. David Binney joins the ensemble on sax with the melody, doubled by both guitar and synth to create an interesting sonic texture. A noticeably distinct element of the album becomes apparent after a few songs. The instruments never change location once introduced. Nir Felder on guitar will always be to the right, and Drew Gress's bass is always slightly to the left. At first this came off as laziness but soon felt as if it was on purpose. The consistency of placement in turn places stronger focus on the compositions and musical elements each musician introduces. With each musician's space marked off, any change in rhythm, any fill, or any variance becomes immediately apparent. There is no masking or fighting for space, and this specific element of consistency makes Finish Line an incredibly easy yet enjoyable album to listen to. Lee has successful produced an album that will certainly please both hard-core jazz and fusion listeners as well as casual listeners. Although Enoch Lee identifies as a jazz musician, Finish Line is truly a fusion album. But saying this requires a little bit of clarification. Fusion to some means high level of technical playing over obscure time signatures with lengthy solos, but as you well hear with Finish Line Lee honestly fuses together several genres as a way to communicate his story. The intended focus of the album is not on the specific musician's technical ability or whether they can justify using all twelve tones in a solo. The intended focus is intended to be the music as a whole for the overall story and feel. Lee has tastefully created an album that can be appreciated and enjoyed by both the casual jazz listener for the feel and sound, as well as the seasoned musicians looking to dig deeper into the tunes messages and what links the album together. Hopefully the title Finish Line marks the end of his education, but the beginning of this artist's career. -Abstract Logix 'Enoch is an excellent pianist with a beautiful touch and a great musical imagination. He has a strong sense of melody and rich harmonic ideas as well as a spontaneous feeling to his playing. He is adventurous while being true to the song he is playing. Seong Yeob a young pianist to watch for!' -Peter Bernstein 'Enoch is a sincere and dedicated pianist who has a lot to say. I look forward to hearing him play anytime!' -Tim Ray 'Enoch is a probing pianist/composer who is sensitive to the melodic arc of his improvisations and original compositions. His pieces take the listener on a journey to someplace they've never yet been. He is working toward developing a new syntax of jazz composition that reconciles the cultures of his native Korea and Metropo
