Sonic Explorer BRASS RING C-40
Recorded , Edited, Mixed and Played in Portland Oregon in the late 1970’s By Lee Rockey. Final Editing for this Album by Ju Suk Reet Meate at Smegma’s Studio January 2013.
Lee Rockey gave up being the best jazz drummer in Portland sometime in the late 1960’s and started playing a modified flat bridge violin, cello, oscillators, and free drumming using a Teac 2340 4 channel tape deck, as soon as they were available, to layer tracks. Brass Ring is one of the very rare finished and named compositions that was originally as a cassette dub, which I managed to borrow and copy.
JAZZ DRUMMER EXTRAORDINAIRE C-60
Side one: Recorded at various NYC locations including Lee’s Apartment 1952-1955. Side two: Mostly Recorded at the Way Out Club Portland, Oregon, May 16 1961
Final EQing and Album Concept by Ju Suk Reet Meate in February 2013
One of the most unique and unsung Artists in Portland history, Lee Rockey was born in Vancouver Wa. 1926 and from 1942 until 1965 or so was the most modern and best “Jazz Drummer” in the area. One of the” Vancouver Whiz Kids” he wore a Zoot Suit with a Reet Pleat and still spoke “Jive” when I met him in 1976. After playing all types of Gigs in Portland including sitting in for touring R&B acts such as The Treniers, he Moved to NYC in 1952 ,and was hired by Neil Hefty (who had just revitalized Count Basie’s Career with his great arrangements and written his last big hit Little Darlin ) for his first big band. Later he was in the studio for Herbie Mann’s debut 10″ in 1955. Also on this album are Homemade Tapes with his friend, pianist and vocalist Ed Beach jamming and being silly in their apartment in NYC.
Moving back to Portland Lee was the go-to Drummer for the most ambitious Jazz Musicians including Jim Smith’s “The Way Out Band” 1961-63 featuring amazing arrangements by Bill and Ernie Hood and others. WARNING: This Album contains Serious High Class music originally intended for Adults of the Mid 20th Century.

Since 1979 Pigface Records has had a dual mission – reflecting Smegma’s personal, L.A. centric freak aesthetic and reveling in aspects of the current and past Portland scene. After the initial burst of Vinyl and cassettes (1979-86) there was a 25 year or so break. Pigface Records has been reinvented by founder Ju Suk Reet Meate as a cassette label to carry on this work into the future.
