StanArt Productions of Hollywood, CA has just released a new DVD documentary about the life and times of jazz bop pioneer drummer Stan Levey.

Stan Levey takes you on a musical journey from the birth of bebop through the Big Band era, to the “west coast, cool school" of modern jazz music.

Along for the ride are special appearances from his friends: Dizzy Gillespie, Miles Davis, Charlie Watts, Quincy Jones, Hank Jones, Bill Holman, Lee Konitz, Howard Rumsey, Bill Henderson, Lalo Schifrin, and many more, including some very special observations from Charlie “Bird" Parker himself. Stan's fascinating tales of his days with the famed Parker/Gillespie Group on 52nd Street and his being the driving force of the Stan Kenton Orchestra and the Lighthouse All-Stars are told along with music, film clips and photographs of many jazz greats captured by world famous photographers William Claxton and Herman Leonard, and include many never before seen photographs from Stan's own personal collection.
