General Lee


General Lee & The Space Army Band is the third pseudonym used by jazz funk visionary Robert Q Lee. Originally performing under the Robert Lee & The Exquisites banner, the Gary-native cut his teeth in the night club circuit along Chicago’s South Side before making his recording debut for Gordon Keith’s Steeltown Records in 1968. The group changed their name to The Lost Weekend in 1970 and began incorporating jazz chords and psychedelia to create a unique brand of soul music. Lee lead his Space Army Band into Ed Cody’s Odyssey Sound Studio in 1979 to record a batch of synth-heavy jazz fusion slappers. Commandeering the Fender Rhodes, Lee goes on a journey through time and space with the transcendent “We Did It Baby” and the infectious dance-floor filler “Pleasure.”
