LIVE: The Levin Brothers @ the Rosendale Cafe, 3/4/17
The Levin Brothers are back together again, touring for the next few weeks after a two-year hiatus.
Led by bassist Tony Levin and keyboardist Pete Levin, the jazz-based quartet of Hudson Valley musicians kicked off their tour near their Hudson Valley homes at the intimate Rosendale Café with two sets of light-hearted, well-played jazz influenced largely by the late bassist Oscar Pettiford.
In front of a packed house, they played many tunes from their one and only self-titled album, as well as a variety of covers from the songbags of King Crimson, Peter Gabriel, Simon & Garfunkel and Thelonious Monk. Drummer Jeff Siegel’s “Ballad of the Innocent” was added to their musical repertoire, and in honor of their upcoming tour stops in Argentina, they also played an Astor Piazzola composition.
They band is currently in the midst of a tour through South and Central America, but they’ll be returning to the Northeast with upcoming stops in Daryl’s House in Pawling on Wednesday, March 29 and the Van Dyck in Schenectady for two shows on Friday, March 31.
