Ranee Lee was born in Brooklyn, but moved to Montreal in 1970 at the age of 18 and worked as a dancer and played drums and tenor sax in jazz bands before beginning her career as a singer. Over the years she's recorded over ten albums, toured throughout North America and the rest of the world, written a children's book, contributed to the soundtrack of a short film named Black Soul, won a Dora Mavor Moore Award for playing Billy Holiday in Lady Day, taught at McGill University and been named to The Order of Canada. These days she's still very active as a recording artist and live performer, both as a singer and actress.
In 1980 she also recorded All Grown Up, a disco album produced by Alain J. Leroux at Experience Studio in Montreal. By the look of the liner notes pretty much every session musician in Montreal played on it, including Yaron Gershovsky on keyboards, Richard Ring on guitar and Michael Farquharson on bass. The LP isn't terribly innovative but Lee is, of course, a great singer and the playing and production are top-notch, so if you're into late-'70s disco you should find "Dancin'" (the album's first track) and "Disco Man" to your liking.
