April 5th, 2006



The first jazz album I've done in a while, and my first real "playing" album.  I pushed the racks of synths aside and revisited my first love, the Hammond Organ.  Most of the CD is in the classic organ trio format and features great performances by guitarists Joe Beck and Mike DeMicco, and drummer Danny Gottlieb.  My brother Tony is sitting in on bass, playing lead on a beautiful Jimmy Giuffre ballad.  The album has a few originals and several of my jazz arrangements of classic pieces - Erik Satie's "1st Gymnopedie", Steely Dan's "Deacon Blues", Ralph Towner's "Icarus" & the Beachboys’ "Sail On Sailor."

The cover photo was taken by photographer Sally Anderson-Bruce.  It was supposed to be used for a CD cover but was rejected. I've been using it as my PR image shot for years and finally got to use it on a CD cover as I had hoped to.  Thanks Sally.


I kept a log of the making of the CD - now moved to it's own section.

The Tony Levin Band

The Resonator Tour 2006

Just released: The Tony Levin Band: RESONATOR

Available from Amazon.com

The band is currently on tour promoting the new release - in Europe and the U.S.  The full schedule is on my LIVE page.

I'm keeping a log on the tour, with photos coming as I can deal with them.




5/4 Milan, Italy at the Live Club

The "Live Club" outside of Milano.  Big place, and a great audience.

Way up there is the entrance to backstage!  That's Jesse at the top of the stairs.


5/5 Treviso, Italy  at Sonny Boy



5/6 Reggio Emelia, Italy at Tunnel

Tunnel is a relatively new club.  Pretty good size and comfortable to play in.  On the downside, the room is all metal and stone, so the sound thrashes around quite a bit.  I'm guessing they'll address that.  They have a very cool live video screen during the show.  Looking for something different to do, I went for that a lot.

Italian vocalist Simona Bencini came up and joined us for our final a capella version of "Don't Give Up".  It was a nice change having her voice on top.  I couldn't get a photo of the moment, but here's Simona backstage with Tony.
