Just a reminder, Lee is playing a CD release party with Byron Isaacs (Bass) and Bill Dobrow (Drums) at the Rockwood Music Hall, on 196 Allen (between Houston & Stanton) at 7:00 on March 23rd.
Here’s a nice little preview from this week’s New Yorker:
Lee Feldman, a piano-playing songwriter from Brooklyn, is a fixture on the downtown scene. In the late nineties, he received acclaim for his début album, Living It All Wrong, and scored a contract with Mercury Records. But the label got caught in an industry merger and it never released his follow-up, The Man in a Jupiter Hat, which Feldman eventually put out himself. Known for tight pop tales of urban life, little vignettes tempered by an incisive sense of humor, Feldman has collected a group of solid local musicians around him, including Teddy Thompson, Steven Bernstein, and Greta Gertler, all of whom contributed to his new record, Ive Forgotten Everything. On March 23, Feldman, backed by his longtime bass-and-drum trio, celebrates the albums release.
