Sven B. Schreiber (sbs) I wouldn't call myself a jazz fan, but occasionally I'm grabbing some genre highlights, when I feel like it. Fusion, big band, and piano trios are among the most frequent purchases in this respect, and this exciting album by composer and arranger Jihye Lee represents the sunniest sides of the vast territory of big band jazz. Favorite track: Dissatisfied Mind.

Mark Kirby The compositions and arrangements on this album are stellar. She has a personal voice that comes through in each of the pieces and that is extremely hard.

Daring Mind comes from a daring mind. Shout out to the excellent personnel especially Mark Farber on drums.

Artist Note:
Daring Mind is a documentation of my first four years in New York. Composing has been my best friend. We danced, cried, laughed, and suffered together. Music heals me by helping to release my emotions. I hope this album can take on you a similar journey as we are all human beings sharing the ups and downs of life.
