In a diverse music career spanning several decades, keyboardist/arranger Pete Levin has performed and recorded with hundreds of Jazz and Pop artists, 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. If it can be imagined then it can be done.”

In April 2012 – Gil’s centennial year – a night at The Iridium became a spontaneous celebration as 3 horn players sat in with Pete’s organ trio. With a stage-full of Gil Evans alumni, the set list was discarded in favor of pieces remembered from Gil’s book, played in the dynamic, freewheeling spirit of the Gil Evans Orchestra of the 80’s.  The just-released recording from that night is being reprised on February 27th.
