About the Album

"Samba de Beach" is the first track from jazz vocalist Allegra Levy’s album "Lose My Number: Levy Sings McNeil." Levy’s collaboration for her mentor with acclaimed jazz trumpeter John McNeil. Levy has penned words for nine of his previously published compositions which had no lyrics until now.
