I'm on a meditational journey when I hear this.
I popped Sacred Spaces in my car and suddenly I'm on a meditational journey. As someone who studies Yoga it was right up my alley. I especially appreciated the guitar work and balance of eastern instruments. Technology in this case amplified the recording rather than over processed it (vocals). Looking forward to Lee's next one.

Peace, Kerry

Fantastic Midtempo Eastern-influenced Music Perfect for Yoga!
I teach Yoga, Pilates, and various other forms of dance and am always on the lookout for good music to use...there is a fine line between soggy New Age and really raw-sounding chanting which-though authentic-is sometimes too much for Western ears. This cd is the perfect melding of authentic Middle-Eastern music with more Western sensibilities and enough of a beat to really energize you yet not overwhelm. I know something is fantastic when I find myself listening to it at home or in the car and not just while teaching!!

Doug Brunell

Music too good to ignore.
Sacred Spaces finds Lee boice teamed up with Sultan Khan, Badal Roy and others to perform world fusion music that is touched by electronica and jazz in order to produce a dream-like sound worthy of attention.
The influence of Indian music weighs heavily on this release, giving it an almost goa-like feel. Trance-like and ephemeral, this release just lifts the listener into another world, though "Ascension" cuts that ride short with its more traditional structure. Not exactly a good thing for a ride you never want to come to an end, but a fitting finish nonetheless.
Get it early and impress your friends with your excellent taste.

Not since John McLaughlins work in Shakti has the guitar
been so well meshed within a World Music fabric -

Multi-talented musician plunders the continents to assemble a musical masala of classical
Indian, Latin and contemporary adult fusion. This hot mix is cooled by bluesy guitar and synths
easy enlightenment for the ears

The multi-talented master is at it again.
Rhythmically layered intensity and tribal-like seduction.
New tracks are sure to thrill new age and smooth jazz audiences.

This recording is the real magic
True story.

I finished teaching my multitrack recording class at the
University of New Haven in Connecticut. I'm driving 21/2
hours back home to New Jersey. I had the forethought to
bring Lee's CD and popped it in the car's CD player not
knowing what to expect. Lee's not a musical one trick pony so was it going to be rock, east Indian, both? I wondered.
What I found out was that this was music so glorious, so
cathartic, so spiritually uplifting that categories no
longer mattered. In my boring car, on my boring
trip home, I had a Zen experience. It was, as the expression
goes, music purely "for the love of the note".
It was the opposite of the formula, homogenized,
manicured, commercial, for the love of money and
fame crap that comes out of my fourteen
year old daughter's stereo for sixteen hours a day.
The last time I heard music of such integrity was when
a musician friend of mine handed me a cassette of
Ry Cooder's production of the Cuban "Buena Vista Social Club"
and said " You have to hear this!".

At the risk of sounding patronizing, thank God there are
talented people in the world like Lee and the other
performers I heard on his CD.

Forget David Copperfield and Zigfried and Roy.
This recording is the real magic in this world.

Rhythmic Fusion Magizine

New release review
Quite an ecclectic album...it is a nice fusion
between traditional Indian, latin influences and
western rock.
