LEVIN BROTHERS 2017 TOUR NEWS

3/22/17  Two airplanes and a hell of a lot of paperwork and we've arrived in San Salvador, El Salvador.  We've got a day off here, set aside for sightseeing.  Concert Friday night; then on Saturday we fly to Newark and home. A couple of days to get our heads screwed on, and we're off on a 7-concert swing through the Northeast.  Check the itinerary just above; the blue text has links to the clubs' websites.
3/21/17  Concert tonight in Le Paz, Bolivia.  We arrived in this beautiful city last night, and were blown away by the spectacular views of the millions of lights on the surrounding hills and temperatures in the mid-'60s.  The only down side here is the altitude - 12,000 feet above sea level!  For us gringos, it's an effort just walking slowly up a small incline. What's that like performing?  I guess will find out.
Tomorrow we fly to El Salvador for a concert, and then back home for a couple of days rest before our Northeast U.S. gigs.

3/19/17  Day off in Buenos Aries.  We did our last show in Argentina last night.  Tomorrow, we say goodbye to the band bus and fly to Le Paz, Bolivia for our next show.  I looked it up:  12,000 feet above sea level.  That's way higher than Denver, Colorado!  We've been jokingly asking for oxygen as part of the back line.  Maybe not so much of a joke.  Stay tuned ...
3/14/17  It's a van tour now, with our agent Leonardo and the irrepressible road manager, Max.  All over Argentina.  The weather is beautiful, in contrast to the news we're getting from home - 2 feet of snow in Woodstock so far!
3/10/17 Santiago, Chile.  Doing an open rehearsal & informal concert at the Pro Jazz music school today.  Great school.  Kind of like Santiago's version of the Berklee School in Boston.  Photos below.
3/8/17  We're camped out in Santiago, Chile.  Beautiful weather, beautiful city and people.  We're rehearsing tomorrow at the ProJazz school.  Then on Saturday, we fly to Uruguay and the tour starts for real.  Photos here and on the Levin Brothers site when we've got 'em.

3/5/17  In just a few days, we hit the road! The Levin Brothers Band - Tony, Pete, Erik Lawrence & Jeff "Siege" Siegel - will be touring starting this month in South America, then back to New York in April and the Northeast U.S. We began last night in our own Woodstock back yard.  Good chance to work out the kinks, revisit a lot of the material from our album, try some new music, and say thanks to our local Woodstock peeps.  With four busy musicians, it's been difficult aligning our schedules to do this.  But it's a labor of love for us, and we're all confirmed road-rats!  Along the way, we're going to record live in Natick, MA and in Rochester, NY, looking to come out of it with a live album.
The final itinerary is just below.  (Hopefully Trump won't institute a ban on jazz musicians entering the country before we get back!) You can click on the blue text to visit the U.S. venues' websites.  Hopefully, one of the shows will in your 'hood. We'll be lookin' for ya.

8/20/16  Fela Davis of 23db Productions in NYC produced this video interview of me as part of their technology in music series.  Done in my Woodstock post-production studio, she got me rambling on about music, tech tools, and the Levin Brothers.   Pretty cool!  Thanks Fela.

 

More new releases I worked on recently. For many musicians I know, 2016 was a great year for recording. 2017 is off to a good start.  Great to have been invited to contribute to these projects.  My discography page is rockin'!


NYC studio vocalist's release of her long-awaited collection of originals, backed by an allstar lineup.


An excellent album by vocalist Chrissy Gardner, recorded last year in Massachusetts with an all-star band.


Digitally re-mastered from the original 1990 release, this session features Mark Egan, Danny Gottlieb,  Lew Soloff, David Taylor and Pete Levin.

Folks have been asking about the Monday Night Band project.
For news, images, etc., please visit the band website at mondaynightband.com  And here's the new promo video - photos from the Cutting Room gig with audio clips from the upcoming album release.  Once it's playing, click on the thingy in the lower right corner to open it up to full screen.  And turn it up!!

3/10/17 Santiago, Chile.  Doing an open rehearsal & informal concert at the Pro Jazz music school today.  Great school.  Kind of like Santiago's version of the Berklee School in Boston.

3/4/17 The 2017 Levin Brothers Band tour kicks off with a local Woodstock, NY gig at the intimate Rosendale Cafe.  Tony and I , along with Erik Lawrence and Jeff "Siege" Siegel.  We've done this every tour, started with a local gig to warm up, get the kinks out or our set lists, and be back home in 20 minutes. (No hotels, no travel expenses!) Revived a lot of the repertoire from our album, and tried out some new, adventurous material too. Packed house, standing room only for both sets.  Great way to start a tour.  Thanks to the photographers whose shots I borrowed below - Samantha Levin, Rudy Lu and Steve Czubara

12/26/16  Got a great group of players up into the boonies for the first tracking sessions for my new solo album.  I've been writing a lot - some conventional jazz and some experimental.  It's a treat to lay your charts in front of great players and see what happens.  I haven't done a solo album like this in a long time - band, live in the studio, no overdubbing.  Here's the first batch of photos, taken by my daughter Samantha.

12/3/16  Singer/Songwriter Marc Black's connection with Woodstock goes back for decades.  Around this time of year, he comes home to the Bearsville Theater for one or two shows, that more often than not turn into dance parties.  Marc tore the place up on Saturday.  We're going to it again on January 1st.  The band was missing keyboardist Warren Bernhardt.  Warren is newly cancer-free, but still hurting from the chemo.  We wish him the best and look forward to jamming with him on New Year's Day.

12/2/16  Once again, I was part of Bill Edwards' Westchester All-Stars annual benefit concert for Wounded Veterans at the Paramount Theater in Peeksill, NY.  A big turnout to see this terrific lineup. And once again, it was a big financial success.

11/16/16  The Woodstock area music series "Jazzstock" kicked off a new season this past Friday night at an amazing new venue - the "Senate Garage" in Kingston.  Vocalist Teri Roiger expanded her usual trio format to a sextet, being featured as well as backing her vocals.  Bassist John Menegon and drummer Tony Jefferson rounded out the rhythm section.  Up front, Chris Pasin on trumpet and Eric Person on sax.

11/5/16  Sometimes, rockin' out in a packed neighborhood bar is the most fun.  Saturday night, we did just that - drummer Rob Wallis' "Rhythm Method Band."  Fronted by R&B vocalist Curtis Winchester, the band features guitarist Gil Parris and sax player Don Cipriano.  And a special guest, NY Yankees legend Bernie Williams - who also happens to be a killin' guitarist!


L to R: Gil Parris, Rob Wallis, Curtis Winchester, Paul Brisbano, Pete, Dan Cipriano, Bernie Williams

10/25/16  Promo video shoot for Bill Edwards' Wounded Veterans Project.  Bill and the Westchester "All-Stars" rock the house at a huge fund-raiser concert every December in Peekskill, NY.  This video shoot features Bill and guitarist Gene Cornish, along with the band and a roomful of folks clad in red.  (Not my color, but I needed to blend.)  I even used my Nord C-1 organ for the shoot - the "reddest" instrument I've got.

10/15/16  Joined blues singer/guitarist Albert Cummings's trio for a terrific concert performance at the beautiful '62 Theater For the Arts in Williamstown, Mass.  Albert lives in this sleepy college town.  He tours internationally, but has never performed here in his hometown.  Predictably, it was an enthusiastic sell-out audience.

10/7/16  Reunion of sorts with guitarist Lou Volpe at Showmans Jazz Club in New York City.  Lou and I go way back in the New York studio scene; we're on each other albums and have played together on other artists' projects.  Showmans is a small, vintage jazz club in Harlem that's been running continuously since 1942, and it's still got that old-school jazz vibe.  Making it even nicer for me, there's a good Hammond B-3 there, so ... no schlepping!  Also joining Lou were Woodstock bassist Rich Syracuse and New York drummer John Cooksey.

10/2/16  Nice local gig last night in Stone Ridge at Lydia's Cafe.  Jazz vocalist Kitt Potter fronting a quartet of me, drummer Tani Tabbal, and Lydia's owner/bassist Mark Usvolk.  After a long time in Woodstock, Kitt had moved down south for a year or so.  Great to have her back in the 'hood. 

9/11/16  Rob Paparozzi and friends, back in Marlboro, NY at The Falcon for a Sunday brunch show.  Lee Finkelstein on drums and George Naha on guitar.  For the 2nd set, we were joined by Rob's Blues Brothers bandmate Bobby Harden.  The two of them tore the place up! We were also joined by my Woodstock neighbor, vocalist Janice Hardgrove.  Janice and I go back to the New York City studio scene of the '70s and '80s.

6/17/16  Spent 3 days in New York City this week, recording with a band of all-star alumni of the Gil Evans Orchestra.  Separate from my own "Monday Night Band" project, this is being produced by Gil's sons,  Noah and Miles.  We recorded several pieces that Gil arranged, but were rarely or never recorded, as well as one of my own compositions, "Subway", a piece I wrote for the band in 1986.  Great New York brass section behind me there - Shunzo Ohno, Jon Faddis, Dave Bargeron, Dave Taylor and John Clark.  Off camera to the right - Chris Hunter, Alex Foster, Gary Smulyan.  Made me smile!

7/27/16  Two updates on the weekly Wednesday night jazz at Annarella Ristorante in Saugerties, NY I've been doing: We've added acclaimed jazz vocalist Teri Roiger, an it's now a regular Wednesday night gig.  Veteran bassist John Menegon (Dewey Redman, David “Fathead” Newman, Jack DeJohnette, Sheila Jordan) is on the case.  Annarella is easily among the best Italian restaurants in the Hudson Valley - relaxed atmosphere, excellent food, and it's practically in my back yard.  I'm lovin' it!  No cover charge.  (The Fettucini in Lobster Sauce is to die!)

7/20/16 I've been doing a jazz duo with bassist John Menegon (Dewey Redman, David “Fathead” Newman, Jack DeJohnette, Sheila Jordan) at an upscale Italian restaurant, Annarella Ristoranti, practically in my back yard.  Nice relaxed atmosphere and excellent food.  It seems to be turning into a weekly thing.  Not sure how long I can stay with it, but I'm lovin' it for now!

7/16/16  Back at Brian's Backyard BBQ with one of my favorite jam bands - Rob Paparozzi and the Blues Farm All-Stars.  Rob, John Tropea and I were joined by a couple of special guests; drummer Vito Luizzi, a veteran of Johnny Winter's band, and the amazing Vaneese Thomas, who brought the house down.


Pete, Rob Paparozzi, Vito Luizzi, Vaneese Thomas, John Tropea

7/2/16  The Don Byron tour continued in Marlboro, NY at The Falcon, easily our favorite Hudson Valley venue.
6/25/16  Kicked off a 4-city tour with Don Byron and an all-star group - an eclectic funk & soul experience.  (Only way I can describe it.)  Basically, we do a lot of Junior Walker material, but anything else is game.  Don on sax, clarinet and vocals, the amazing Dean Bowman on vocals, Zach Alford on drums, Scott Petito on bass, and Matt Finck on guitar.  A nice crowd came out to Helsinki in Hudson, NY, sang along, clapped and grooved with us.

6/8-9/16 Spent a couple of days at Scott Petito's NRS Studio doing tracks for vocalist Roseann Sureda's upcoming CD release.  Roseann is hustling to get these last 5 tunes done in time for her CD Release Show at the Metropolitan Room in New York City next month.

6/5/16  Rob Paparozzi and The Blues Farm, back for another Sunday brunch in Marlboro, NY @ The Falcon.  A gloomy rainy day produced a near capacity crowd that inspired us to kick it up several notches.  Some renditions of Blues Brothers standards had folks dancing in the aisles.  Nice way to spend Sunday.  Rob on vocals and harmonica, the amazing John Tropea on guitar, and Jerry Marotta on drums.

5/29/16  Joe Beesmer, who leads the Woodstock-based band "Uncle Funk" has been having some medical issues and was short on funds.  So of course, a musical extravaganza was in order.  A great crowd came out for the 10-band lineup at Keegan Ales, our favorite are watering hole.  Bassist Scott Petito assembled a terrific group to headline the evening, then named it "The Inmates" and Photoshopped the band PR photo below.  (The band is better than the photo!)  Vocalists Leslie Ritter and Amy Fradon, guitarist Mike DeMicco, drummer Eric Parker, Scott on bass and me on keyboard.  And of course, Joe "Uncle Funk" Beesmer sittin' in.

5/20/16  Kingston, NY @ Alley Cat.  Celebrating her upcoming CD release, this was Roseann Sureda's first live outing with the backing trio from the album - bassist Scott Petito and drummer Peter O'Brien.  This is a brand new, recently opened venue - nice, comfortable bar.  Wishing them well.  Photo by Jimbo Marzano

5/18/16  Jazz on the Hudson - and BBQ!  Good pickup jazz group fronted by the iconic Lillie Howard.  Me and a few of my favorite Hudson Valley cats - guitarist Mike Jackson, saxophonist Rich Maraday, and drummer Ernie Colon.  A couple of interesting points:  Back in the '60s, Lillie was part of the hit pop duo, "Billy and Lillie."  None of that on this gig though.  Ernie Colon - first time I've done a gig with him on drums.  Ernie is a killin' conga player, playing on my "Certified Organic" CD and in the live quartet.

4/24/16  Vocalist Roseann Sureda and a nice trio doing the jazz brunch at the New York Restaurant in Catskill, NY.  Rich Syracuse is on bass, Chris Pasin on trumpet.  Great restaurant with a really nice vibe to the room and this teriffic Sunday jazz series that they're doing.  Check it out.

4/17/16  Rob Paparozzi & The Blues Farm All-Stars - back for a jazz 'n blues brunch at our favorite venue, The Falcon in Marlboro, NY.  Rob, John Tropea, Lee Finkelstein and me on the house's Hammond B3.

3/27/16  Jazz brunch at New York Restaurant, a wonderful new Hudson Valley venue.  Great food, and they have a great jazz lineup every Sunday.  Today was a trio with virtuoso trumpet player and bassist John Menegon.  (Notice the absence of hair on the bandstand.  This should have been billed as the "Cleanhead Trio!")  Many people sat in with us.  Sometimes that can be a drag, but today it was great.  Great food, nice folks.  Doing this again twice next month.  Looking forward!

3/20/16 Played 3 concerts in Syracuse, NY produced by CNY Jazz, with Nigerian/British soul/jazz vocalist Ona Onabule.  Ola is an incredible composer and vocalist, and a dynamic performer.  Backed by an all-star NYC quartet doing mostly pieces from his latest album, it was a total pleasure.  I highly recommend that you check him out and hear this album.  Along with me, bassist Ivan Bodley, drummer Joe Goretti and guitarist Ron Jackson. 

3/2/16  Ranchero Cantina in Emerson, New Jersey:  Vocalist Nikki Armstrong assembled an all-star cast for a fundraiser for public radio station WFDU.  It was an amazing night of music, featuring Nikki, Rob Paparozzi, Bobby Harden, Don & Bill Harris, Jason Green, Terry Kearney, Frank Canino, John Tropea, Eric Udell, Lee Marvin and many others.  Photos below taken by Amy Kerwin.

2/14/16  Rob Paparozzi & The Blues Farm All-Stars - back and groovin' at the Falcon in Marlboro, NY for a Valentine's Day brunch jam.  John Cariddi on guitar, Lee Finkelstein on drums, and me on Hammond organ.  Woodstock bassist Charlie Kniceley sat in on bass.  A nice crowd turned out, braving single digit temperatures to show some love.  Speaking of love ... I love it that I get to just walk in and play the house organ.  Love The Falcon!

2/9/16  I've been at Mark Dann's Woodstock studio for the last several days, recording piano and organ tracks for Kurt Henry's new album, along with drummer/producer Eric Parker and bassist/engineer Mark Dann.  Kurt's a wonderful singer/songwriter, and a fine guitarist.  It's going to be a really nice album.

2/1/16  I've been working at Sonart Studio, mixing Native American vocalist Joan Henry's album, "Uprising." Meanwhile, I've been tracking keyboards at Mark Dann's Woodstock studio for Kurt Henry's (no relation to Joan) new album, being produced by Eric Parker.  Kurt's a terrific singer/songwriter.  Looking forward to hearing the end result.

Here are some pics from the Sonart sessions.  Watching Joan sing is almost as much fun as listening to her sing!


Pete, Sonart Studio's Ken Lovelett, Joan, producer Gus Mancini


Joan dances when she sings - sometimes gets a little off-mic.

1/1/16  Starting the new year off with a bang: I joined folk/rock singer Marc Black and his band for a free dance party/concert at Woodstock's Bearsville Theater.  Great turnout and a great night of music.  Toward the end, Marc was inviting dancers to come up on stage - a dangerous move, but fortunately it wasn't a heavy drinking crowd and all was well.  Woodstock knows how to party!  In the top photo, Don Davis, Pete, Marc, Amy Fradon, Eric Parker and Mike Esposito.  Warren Bernhardt, on the far right, unfortunately  got cut out of this shot, the only full band shot I could find from the evening.


Pete, Eric Parker, Warren Bernhardt

12/27/15  Sunday brunch at The Falcon in Marlboro, NY with Rob Paparozzi & The Blues Farm.  Really eclectic, rather than blues - jazz, blues, R&B, whatever.  And with 3 of the quartet currently touring with the Blues Brother Band, you never know when we're going to launch into one of their signature tunes.  Rob on harmonica and vocals, John Tropea on guitar, Lee Finkelstein on drums, and me on Hammond Organ.  By the end of the gig, we had Evan Conway sitting in on bass, Steve Finkelstein on congas, and Mike Torsone and I sharing the Hammond.  Lots of fun!


Mike Torsone, Pete, Rob, John, Lee, Evan Conway, Steve Finkelstein

12/11/15  Over 20 performers gathered at the Unitarian Church in Schenectady, NY for a tribute/memorial to jazz pianist Lee Shaw.  A near capacity crowd turned out to hear 4 hours of great music, film, images and stories.  A great evening.  I performed in the final group of the evening, a sextet built on Lee's rhythm section for over 20 years, bassist Righ Syracuse and drummer Jeff Siegel.  Completing the group, Chris Pasin on trumpet, Brian Patinaude on sax, and Matt Finck on guitar.


The Sextet: Pete, Brian, Chris, Rich, Jeff & Matt

12/4/15  Bill Edwards & The Westchester All-Stars at the Paramount Theater in Peekskill, NY for the 4th annual concert to benefit Wounded Veterans organizations.  Bill puts in a tremendous effort to mount this show every year.  An amazing lineup of singers and musicians did a 3 hour show to a packed house.  Performers included Vaneese Thomas, Joni Blondell, MaryAnn Renza, Kathy Policastro, Chuck St. Troy, Angel Rissoff, Tom Dudley, Dianne Cricchio, Corrin Huddleston, Gene Cornish, Carmine Appice, Rob Wallis, Wayne Warnecke, Kristen Capolino, Scott Staten, Paul Opalach, an 8-piece horn section, and several more folks sittin in.  An amazing evening that kicked off with me on piano and a Color Guard accompanying the amazing Vaneese Thomas singing the National Anthem.  Wow!

11/28/15  Don Byron all-stars played to a packed house at Club Helsinki in Hudson, NY.  Totally eclectic band where things just happen unexpectedly.  We had a great time.  Dean Bowman (Screaming Headless Torsos) on vocals, Zach Alford (Davie Bowie) on drums, Scott Petito (The Fugs) on bass, Matt Finck on guitar and me on organ and piano.  Wish this band could play more often, but with Don teaching college in Colorado and Dean Bowman living in Denmark, it's hard to get us together.  Photos by Samantha Levin 

11/21/15  With Don Byron back in town for a couple of weeks, we put together a couple of impromptu gigs.  Loosely based on Don's Jr. Walker tribute album, we stretched out and did a lot of obscure R&B from Walker, Ray Charles, Marvin Gaye, etc.  Seems like I've been playing with a streak of "all-star" bands lately; this one included the amazing Dean Bowman, Zach Alford & Scott Petito.  Nice!


Pete, Dean Bowman, Don Byron, Zach Alford, Scott Petito, Matt Finck

11/20/15  Played her in the Hudson Valley with The City Boys All-Stars, a band I played with over 20 years ago.  It's still going strong - and seems to have gotten bigger.  Original R&B/Rock.  Great players.  Nobody got a photo with everybody visible.

11/4/15  Spending several days in New Jersey at Kaleidoscope Sound recording an album for Zhang Ling, a very talented vocalist and bassist from Beijing, best known for his association with Chinese rock star Cuijian.  Ling came to New York to do his solo album with American musicians, including John Tropea, Lenny White, Tony Jefferson and John Cariddi.  It's mostly Blues, and he's great at it.  (Although with Chinese lyrics, we're not sure what he's singing about, but it's probably Blues.)  Some of my photos from the sessions ...

11/01/15 A large local crowd came out to Keegan Ales in Kingston to hear dozens of musicians jamming in tribute to our saxophonist friend Peter Buettner, who is overwhelmed by medical bills.  I did a set with Erik Lawrence, Scott Petito and Jeff "Siege" Siegel, pictured below.  Somebody quipped that "Petito, Levin, Siegel & Lawrence" sounds like a law firm, which has opened the gates to numerous jokes - Passing the bar, etc.  (Feel free to go on Facebook and add your own.)  Later in the evening I sat in with Joe Beesmer, Vito Petrocitto and Eric Parker.  Rocked the joint!

10/25/15  Erik Lawrence Quartet in Marlboro, NY at The Falcon.  Erik and I do this venue often with a jazz quartet.  Joining us this time on guitar, Jeff Ciampa and Lee Falco on drums.

10/15/15  Bassist Jim Curtin and I backed vocalist Pamela Pentony as part of the jazz concert series at the Arts Upstairs gallery in Phoenicia, NY.  Karin Wolf created this wonderful series of intimate shows earlier this year.  It's a good vibe place to perform in, surrounded by modern art.  Karin also took these photos.

This looks like a bogus, poised photo in a Nord Electro ad.
But it's real - we were gettin' into it.

10/9/15  Nice, intimate jazz set with the Al Guart Trio at Kindred Spirits in Palenville, NY.  Jim Curtin on bass.  How often to I get to play a white grand piano?  Pretty classy!

10/2/15  Preceding the Woodstock Film Festival's screening of "Lee's 88 Keys" - a documentary by director Susan Robbins about the amazing and inspirational jazz pianist Lee Shaw - her trio was scheduled to perform in a small restaurant around the corner from the theater.  When it was apparent that Lee would be unable to make the gig, I was asked to step in, joining her longtime rhythm section, drummer  Jeff "Siege" Siegel and bassist Rich Syracuse.  I learned several of Lee's original pieces, and we performed them to a packed house, before bopping around the corner to the Orpheum Theater to catch the film.  What a great evening!

9/11/15  I used to see guitarist Lou Volpe in New York studios all the time, but we hadn't played together in several years.  We had this mini reunion at Showmans Jazz Club, one of Harlem's premier old school jazz clubs and a cultural landmark since the '40s when it opened next to the Apollo Theater.  It hasn't changed a whole lot - old dusty wooden walls, long narrow room with a small stage at one end and a vintage bar running the whole length of the room.  The room has a great vibe.  And, a nice Hammond B-3 on stage, so ... no shlepping!

8/29/15  The annual Hudson Valley Jazz Festival finally expanded this year to include Kingston at ASK - the Arts Society of Kingston.  3 bands covered the evening, with me headlining.  Basically it was a trio with bassist Rich Syracuse and drummer (and honoray Levin Brother) Jeff "Siege" Siegel.  As a special guest, we were joined by trumpet player Chris Pasin.  Nice evening.  Good crowd.  Hope this is a sign that it will continue.  Sure is nice playing festivals in my own neighborhood!


Pete, Rich Syracuse, Jeff Siegel, Chris Pasin

8/6/15  Jazz clarinetist Don Byron put together an all-star group for a one-time show doing music from his CD "Do The Boomerang" - music of Motown legend Junior Walker.  The set featured the remarkable jazz/blues vocalist Dean Bowman (of "Screaming Headless Torsos")  along with guitarist Matt Finck, "Fugs" bassist Scott Petito, David Bowie drummer Zach Alford, and me on organ mostly.  We were somewhat under-rehearsed, but sometimes that makes for the best spontaneous performances - and this was that.  Wonderful night.  With Dean living in Denmark and Don in Denver, Colorado, it'll be tough getting this bunch together for an encore, but we're hoping to give it a try this winter.  Stay tuned ...

7/18/15 Rapidly becoming my favorite pickup jam band - "The Blues Farm" fronted by vocalist/harmonica master Rob Paparozzi (who also currently fronts the Original Blues Brothers Band).  Also on board, guitarist John Tropea and drummer Jerry Marotta.  (No bass - I'm  playing organ.)  The hit was at Brian's Backyard BBQ in Middletown, NY, a real old-fashioned road house that features both Hudson Valley groups and national touring bands.  In the photos, check out the walls; hundreds of musicians from all walks have autographed it.  Great venue.  (And the smoked prime rib is to die!)

7/1/15 Another great Woodstock jazz Wednesday at Catskill Pizza.  Usually I'm a guest with Jeff Siegel's band here, but this time it was with trumpet player, Chris Pasin.  Lew Scott on bass and Peter O'Brien on drums.  Our friend Lisa Saalfield makes all of these Wednesday night gigs, and often is the only one to take photos.  This time, we got her to pose for one with the band.

6/28/15  Sunday jazz brunch at The Falcon, my favorite Hudson Valley music venue. (Not the least of reasons is that I just walk in and play their Hammond B-3.  No schlepping!)  Erik Lawrence put together this nice quartet with me, guitarist Matt Finck and drummer Tony Jefferson. Funny that Erik and I had just played here with The Levin Brothers Band 2 weeks ago.  Scroll down a bit and you'll see.  No suits this time!

6/22/15  I've been playing occasionally with singer/guitarist Beki Brindle and also playing on the album she's working on.  We just did a shoot for a music video for one of the songs from the album.  Actor Brad Dourif joined us onstage, portraying a faded rock star.  Lot's of fun - if you don't count playing the same song 60 times over a 5 hour span.  (I think I've got it memorized now.)

6/13/15  The Levin Brothers - Tony & Pete with Erik Lawrence and Jeff "Siege" Siegel - played to a capacity audience in Marlboro, NY at The Falcon, one of our favorite Hudson Valley venues.  With Tony's 2015 touring schedule with King Crimson, this is likely the last Hudson Valley show we'll be able to do this year.  We're working on our 2016 plans, including another swing through the Northeast U.S., Europe, Japan, and a new album.  We'll keep you posted.  Here's some shots from Saturday's show.

6/10/15  Catskill Mountain Pizza for a nice local jazz gig - piano trio with the Siegel/Syracuse duo.  Small room intimate, no cover charge.  Love playing with these guys, and it's a great chance for me to try out new ideas.  Trumpeter Chris Pasin sat in with us.

  6/8/15 Borden Auditorium @ Manhattan School of Music in New York City.  Dozens of musicians and performers joined together for this joyful celebration of Lew Soloff's life and career. A superlative trumpet player and my friend for decades, Lew passed away unexpectedly a few weeks ago.  The lineup of performers and the standing-room-only turnout underscored how much Lew was loved.  The large band was fundamentally the Gil Evans Orchestra, with many extra players rotating through the evening.  The show opened with Wynton Marsallis leading a Dixieland band through the hall in a real-deal New Orleans funeral scene.  (Two photos below) In the photo just below, the band is playing "Spinning Wheel" with Will Lee doing the vocal.  The 7 trumpet players on stage played Lew's iconic solo in unison.  Pretty crazy!

  5/31/15  Another jaz brunch in Marlboro, NY at The Falcon - this time with a groovin' organ trio featuring guitarist Matt Finck and drummer Tony Jefferson.  As always, an enjoyable gig for us at this Hudson Valley venue - especially for me, since I get to just walk in and play the club's Hammond B-3.  Nice extra bonus for Matt and I as well as the audience when Tony came up front and scatted a bebop tune; he's a great vocalist as well as a great drummer.  We're doing this again on Sunday, June 28th, adding Erik Lawrence on sax.

  5/16/15  Another nice weekend in Upstate New York at the Public Theater in Auburn with the Peter Mack Quintet.  Good jazz, good folks, good food ... and a sweet Hammond B-3 waiting for me.  Stretched out a bit and wore my Levin Brothers T-shirt for the gig.  Had to do it!

  5/12/15  French hornist John Clark and his experimental jazz group, "The Odd Couple Quintet" performing at the ShapeShifter Lab in Brooklyn, NY in a premier performance of John's jazz arrangements of 2 of the Mozart Horn Concertos, and celebrate the CD release of the two pieces.  Not many jazz groups have a configuration of rhythm section with French Horn and Bassoon up front.  In fact, this is the only one.  Pretty cool! 


Pete, John Clark, Michael Rabinowitz, Mark Egan, Freddie Bryant, Karl Latham

  4/26/15  The Blues Farm, a new all-star quartet fronted by Rob Paparozzi and including master guitarist John Tropea and funkmeister Lee Finkelstein, woke up the Marlboro, NY 'hood with a rockin' Sunday Brunch at The Falcon.  We were definitely groovilating!

  April 3, 2015:  Most of the town of Rosendale (NY) turned out to memorialize and share some love for Gail Kniceley, wife of my good friend, bassist Charlie Kniceley.  Dozens of performers in 5 or 6 band configurations.  It was a beautiful evening.

  March 2015:  The first Levin Brothers Band tour, celebrating its 2014 album release.  Tony playing bass & cello, Pete playing piano and organ, Erik Lawrence on saxes and flute, and Jeff "Siege" Siegel on drums. The tour started with a capacity crowd at the Rosendale Cafe - special for two reasons; it was the band's first gig ever, and it was in our Hudson Valley back yard.  Sunday night we had a standing-room-only crowd at a classic music club, The Turning Point in Piermont, NY.  Then we we took off on the road for real, with a swing through upstate New York.  Groovilating New York State, one town at a time!

  2/22/15  Played a nice jazz brunch at The Falcon in Marlboro, NY - this time with a powerhouse trio; Matt Finck on guitar and Adam Nussbaum on drums.  Some pretty hard groovin' for a Sunday morning, but nobody complained.  Nasty storm the night before, but today was sunny and folks came out.  Nice photos by Ed Conway.

  2/4/15  Sometimes, the informal local gigs are the most fun.  I joined Jeff Siegel and Rich Syracuse as this week's guest as part of their Wednesday night jazz series at Catskill Pizza in downtown Woodstock.  Did a piano trio for the first set, then guitarist Matt Finck joined us for the second.  I like doing piano trio; makes me work ... and think!  Photos: Lisa Saalfield

  1/22-25/15  Spent the weekend at the NAMM show in Anaheim, California.  Tony and I did 8 shows at the NS Design booth, playing music as a duo from our Levin Brothers album. We were there in support of the Steinberger basses and cellos that Tony plays.  I had a loaner Electro 4 from the Nord company.  We had a lot of fun playing the tunes live; first time we've done that.  Good practice for our tour in March.  Also, a great hang.  Lots of friends stopped by to say hello and listen.  (See photos below)  In a strange epilog, the "Historic  Snowstorm" on the east coast got our flights cancelled.  So we had a few extra days to hang in the California sunshine.  Back to normal now.

Also did an impromptu organ trio set at the NORD booth.  I'm playing the new C2D organ.  With me, Barry Finnerty on guitar and Harvey Sorgen on drums.

6/27/13 Full house at the Bearsville Theater in Woodstock for the Gabriel Butterfield Band with special guests Kal David and Lauri Bono.  We rocked the joint.  A former Woodstock resident, Kal was the frontman for The Fabulous Rhinestones. A California resident for decades, he hadn't performed in Woodstock in almost 10 years.  Many of his fans came out to hear a mixture of Butterfield and Rhinestones hits.  Lauri joined us on stage for a couple of tunes and tore the place up.  We love Lauri!

5/18/13  Rob Paparozzi Quartet in Marlboro, NY @ The Falcon, my favorite Hudson Valley music venue.  In addition to his singing chops (he's currently front man for the Blues Brothers Band) Rob is one of the world's top harmonica players.  When he does his own small groups, it's billed as the "Hudson River Rats" - and it grooves like crazy!  Last night, I was one of the Rats, along with Dave Stryker on Guitar and Lee Finkelstein on drums.

5/13/13  Three decades of Gil Evans Orchestra alumni gathered for a concert to celebrate Gil's birthday.  Great music.  Great reunion for us.  Chris Hunter, David Binney, Tim Heggarty, Dave Mann, Alex Foster, John Clark, Bob Stewart, Lew Soloff, Shunzo Ohno, Miles Evans, Noah Evans, Tom Malone, Dave Bargeron, Earl McIntyre, Mark Egan, Delmar Brown, Kenwood Dennard, Mino Cinelu, Paul Metzke, Oz Noy, Matt Garrison, Don Pate .... whew!  Photos by John Ward

4/25/13  The Ali Ryerson quintet in Marlbory, NY at the Falcon.  We had a double problem come up: Drummer Karl Latham had hand surgery and couldn't play, and bassist Mark Egan had a last minute emergency.  No rhythm section ... yikes!  Luckily Thierry Arpino and Tony Levin were available and jumped in.  A short rehearsal, soundcheck and we killed it.

February 27 - New York, NY at The Iridium. CD release party with an all-star septet - Lenny White, Dave Stryker, Lew Soloff, Alex Foster, Tom Malone and John Clark.  This is a reunion of Gil Evans Orchestra alumni, celebrating Gil and the live recording we did here last April. We did a pretty well reviving the spirit of the dynamic, controlled chaos of the Gil Evans Orchestra of the late 70's and early 80's.  Photos by Samantha Levin
