b. London, England. After an early classical training between the ages of five and nine, Gee lost interest in the piano during his teens. But it was during his time at Sheffield University that he developed his love of modern jazz, and began to practise the piano again. On his return to London he attended the jazz course at the Guildhall School of Music for a short time, but soon left, disenchanted with the system of jazz education. Since then Gee has quickly earned himself a reputation on the British jazz scene. Leading a trio with Wayne Batchelor and Winston Clifford, he won the 1991 Wire Best Newcomer Award. During the rest of the decade he played regularly with saxophonist Ed Jones, and toured the world with his trio, featuring Steve Rose (bass) and Winston Clifford (drums).
