ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
What would a sunset sound like in song? ... Old man sun lays his head down, lets the landscape rest. Like a father tucking children in bed, he smiles and slowly bows his head, gives us one last kiss of day, then blushes red and slips away. ... Click on Lee's song Dusk, a Bossa Nova that's easy on your ears. While you're checking out the sample tracks, listen to the Gelatin Giant slowly rise, then quiver and stomp up and down the neck of Lee's 12-string guitar before settling back down again.

Lee Wilson is a singer-songwriter and composer of music for solo acoustic guitar. The CD Dusk is his initial offering for public listening pleasure.

Sympathize with the single guy in Crystal Blue Eyes as he beckons to the blue-eyed temptress, only to be shunned. ... Oh well, you go to your place, I'll go to mine. I'll dream of kissing your neck and making time. Someday, we'll stroll together side by side. Envision two pogo sticks bouncing in harmony as you listen to Lee's 12-string slide romp, Boing-Boing. Let Chicago Cascade take you to the bank of a lively mountain stream, with water tumbling every which way, making its own melody as it cascades down the slope. Let your imagination drift into Flight of the Kite, as it swoops and sways, notes darting to and fro.

Like what you hear? Buy the CD to capture the complete listening experience. Want to know who might be walking your city sidewalks in the wee hours of the morning, just to count the streetlights? Listen to Stoic. More romance put to song? Check out Sharon, Don't Hide Your Love. Lightning-fast fingerstyle guitar rhythms? Full Gallop unleashes an entire herd that can't wait to be heard. Or, relax with the peaceful acoustic guitar stylings of Slide into 4th and Snowflake Promenade.

In the late 20th century, Lee was a local musician in Little Rock, where he played in bars and at many charity concerts. He joined a group of avant garde blues enthusiasts in the 1980s who were dedicated to reviving what was then a dying art form.

Influenced by his new friends, Lee used his spare time to organize talent for shows at local universities and city parks. He shared the billing (and the audience) with the late Larry Totsy Davis (who wrote Texas Flood, one of Stevie Ray Vaughn's staples), John Craig (former guitarist with the Ike and Tina Turner Review), and Arkansas bluesman Cedell Davis.

The group of enthusiasts eventually started hosting the annual Arkansas River Blues Festival. Lee and friends were the opening act for festival headliners such as John Lee Hooker, Johnny Winter, Albert Collins, Little Milton, Lonnie Mack, and Honeyboy Edwards. (See extended bio at www.lee-wilson.com.)

By the 1990s, the blues had become popular once again across the nation. Lee stopped organizing concerts, and eventually stopped playing music altogether.

In the new millennium, Lee moved to Denver and started performing at open stages around town. Playing the guitars that had been neglected for several years gave him a fresh perspective, and he began writing songs and composing music for solo acoustic guitar. Some of his compositions are blues-based, and others feature elements of Bossa Nova, classical music, folk, and jazz. Put your feet up and enjoy a listen.

Amazing Boston Talent!
I was fortunate enough not only to buy this cd at virgin Megastore in Boston, MA but got to meet Lee back in 1999 through a mutual friend in the business. Lee is a very talented individual and I wish him all the luck in the world with his music. Also am looking forward to the MTV Reality show coming up with Lee this fall. Should be hot watching Lee live his day to dfay life in the music world. You like R&B, I strongly suggest peepin this kid out now! ~Bylli Crayone (Friend from Lawrence, MA)
