|Lasse ”Lee” Ericson was - as far as I know - one of
the founding fathers of the Bluebirds.
Sometimes a merciless boogie woogie pianist, sometimes a restrained
tinkler of the ivories, he adorned the first three CD's "Walkin’
On Thrills” 1997, ”Oh Baby!” 1999 and ”Sweet
Jambouree” 2001. Then he decided to launch his own outfit, the
nattily dressed Kingbees.
|The CD "Big Boys 'n' Pink Ladies" was issued
in 2004 on Last Buzz Record Co. and the follow-up "Stories To
Hold You Spellbound" in 2006 on Ladyface Records. Both CDs display
Lee's considerable songwriting talents, already evident on the Bluebirds'
records. "Big Boys" boasts 9 tracks penned by him, out of
13 tracks altogether. Respect!
