THE LEVIN BROTHERS

“The Levin Brothers manage to be both serious and playful without ever losing the passion and edge that comes from pairing two masters of their instruments playing a style of music they both love.”-The Daily Vault

The band has been on hiatus this past Summer and Fall while Tony is touring with King Crimson.  But they’re hitting the road this coming winter.  (“The Snowtire Tour” maybe?)  Much of it in the Northeast, but after 5 years they’re finally able to include some new areas – Michigan, Ohio, Canada.  The band is hitting the road in 2020: Tony, Pete and Jeff “Siege” Siegel, along with their friend, master guitarist Jeff Ciampa. They love touring the Northeastern U.S. – fun drives in the van, no airports, no overweight charges, easy to find good bagels – but they’re looking at other possibilities too, Japan, China, Europe, South America. Guitarist Jeff Ciampa, will be joining them on the upcoming tour.  A veteran NYC studio musician, Jeff’s extensive jazz credits include stints with Ornette Coleman, Dave Matthews, Harry Belafonte, Bill Evans and Mark Egan.

Since graduating from the Eastman School of music, Tony Levin has become the bass and Chapman Stick voice for Peter Gabriel and King Crimson. In addition, he has played on notable recordings for John Lennon, Pink Floyd, Lou Reed, Alice Cooper, Dire Straits, Carly Simon, Judy Collins, and many others. Tony has major jazz credentials, having worked with Buddy Rich, Steps Ahead, L’Image, Gary Burton, Chuck Mangione, and Herbie Mann. He currently records and tours with Peter Gabriel, King Crimson, Stick Men, and The Crimson ProjeKCt.

As a French Horn major, Pete Levin earned a master’s degree from the Juilliard School. In the early ‘70s he switched to keyboards, becoming a synthesizer specialist in the New York City recording studio scene. Over the years, he has graced hundreds of jazz and pop recordings and performances by the likes of Miles Davis, Gil Evans, Jimmy Giuffre, Dave Brubeck, David Sanborn, Joe Louis Walker, Don Elliott, Freddie Hubbard, Annie Lennox, Charles Mingus, Jaco Pastorius and Wayne Shorter. He currently records with his organ trio with Dave Stryker and Lenny White.

Drummer/Composer Jeff Siegel is a veteran of the New York Jazz Scene and has worked with a virtual who’s-who of jazz artists. A member of Sir Roland Hanna’s Trio from 1994-99, Jeff has performed and recorded with jazz legends including Ron Carter, Kenny Burrell, Jack DeJohnette, Benny Golson, Frank Foster, Helen Merrill and Mose Allison.
