Following Steve Lehman’s trio, on Friday night at the Royal Room, Earshot Jazz Festival 2013 presented an exciting new ensemble premiered all new repertoire. Cellist Peggy Lee is a fixture on the fertile music scene in Vancouver, BC. She is, for example, a first-call band member for visitors to the city’s famed annual jazz festival, including trumpeter Dave Douglas, guitarist Nels Cline and Seattle-based keyboardist Wayne Horvitz. Raised in Toronto and trained in classical music at the University of Toronto, Lee is a dynamic match for tenor saxophonist Skerik and improvised music innovator Horvitz.
