Lehman has performed and recorded nationally and internationally with his own ensembles and with Anthony Braxton, Vijay Iyer, Jason Moran and Meshell Ndegeocello. Lehman received a master’s in composition (2002) from Wesleyan University, where he studied under Anthony Braxton while concurrently working with Jackie McLean at the Hartt School of Music.
