Randolph Lees latest recording project is an international collaborative effort featuring new music for trumpet from living South American composers. Teaming up with Colombian composer/pianist Mauricio Arias, the University of Florida Symphonic Band under the direction of Jay Watkins, a brass ensemble, a full studio orchestra, and influential Brazilian guitarist Ulisses Rocha, the album includes a wide variety of sounds and genres. Having the privilege of giving the world premieres of four of the six tracks on the album, Randolph Lee decided after a recital in Bogota, Colombia that it was time to get these pieces recorded.

Landscapes and Shorts contains original music written for Timothy Winfield, trumpet, and Nancy DeSalvo, piano, as well as a recording of one of Walter Hartleys classic instrumental compositions, Sonatina for Trumpet. Also included are world premiere recordings of Daniel Perttus Torngat, Joshua Hobbs Keystone Landscapes, Jason Howards Nine Short Shorts for Trumpet and Piano, and Josh Oxfords Beethoven in the House. Oxfords composition is written for trumpet and live electronics and employs a mix of blues and funk while also cleverly utilizing twelve-tone methods. Compositions by Perttu and Hobbs engagingly paint musical pictures of landscapes in Pennsylvania and Canada, while Howards work journeys through several short, but emotionally charged characteristic pieces.
