Saxophonist Amy Lee's 2nd solo release, Use Me, is filled with feel-good songs and soulful soloing that's unique to today's "Smooth Jazz" monotony. That's because her years playing with Charles Neville of the Neville Brothers and Jimmy Buffett have brought to her palette a distinctive blend of jazz, funk and storytelling which is undeniably weaved into her music and playing. Producer/engineer Steve Schwartzberg also brings his pop/R&B skills to the project having worked with such artists as Toni Braxton, TLC, and Boyz II Men. The resulting instrumental jazz-pop-soul mix is incredibly fresh and fun. The album contains 7 original compositions and 3 covers including Bill Withers' "Use Me" as well as Stevie Wonder's "Too Shy To Say." It is sure to become a favorite in your CD collection.

The accomplished musicians on this CD have recorded with hundreds of artists including Earth, Wind & Fire, Steely Dan, Marvin Gaye, Luther Vandross, David Sanborn, Kenny G, the Temptations, Quincy Jones, George Benson, David Bowie, and Stevie Wonder.
