Pete Levin

In a diverse music career spanning several decades, keyboardist/arranger Pete Levin has performed and recorded with hundreds of Jazz and Pop artists - including Paul Simon, Annie Lennox, Miles Davis, David Sanborn, Lenny White, Wayne Shorter, Jaco Pastorius, Robbie Robertson and John Scofield - receiving critical accolades for his work during a 15 year association with the legendary Gil Evans, and his 8 year stint with jazz icon Jimmy Giuffre. Says Levin, “What I got from Gil was the unshakable notion that playing music was to create from a place where there are no boundaries.

That orchestra released several fine albums such as Svengali (Atlantic, 1973) and There Comes A Time (RCA, 1975) and, on ...

Gil Evans Orchestra: Hidden Treasures - Monday Night Sessions, vol 1

Read "Hidden Treasures - Monday Night Sessions, vol 1" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi

A tre decenni dalla morte del suo leader, esce il 7 dicembre il nuovo disco della Gil Evans Orchestra finalmente registrato in studio. Com'è noto, sia gli ultimi album della band con l'arrangiatore ancora in vita, sia il postumo Tribute To Gil (Soul Note 1989), con la formazione orfana, erano registrazioni live, spesso acusticamente carenti. Per ...

John Clark: The Odd Couple Quintet +1

Read "The Odd Couple Quintet +1" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi

John Clark ha acquisito notorietà negli anni settanta, quando fu tra i principali strumentisti dell'orchestra di Gil Evans. Si sa che l'arrangiatore canadese aveva un debole per il corno francese e non se ne privò al varo della big-band “elettrica." Con John Clark lo strumento è uscito dal ruolo di strumento occasionale che aveva avuto ...

Attempts have been made to use them, of course, most recently by Julian Schneemann on Roundabout, but in that work, they were used more as colors in the mix.What is unusual is for these instruments to be in the ...

Read "The Odd Couple Quintet +1" reviewed by Jack Bowers

"And now," as John Cleese used to intone on the Monty Python television series, “for something completely different." In this case, a jazz quintet (+1) sporting a front line of French horn and bassoon and performing, among other things, two horn concertos by Mozart. An odd coupling? At first blush, it would seem so. Far less ...
