Rhythmweb has had a Stan Levey
fan page up almost since we started in 1996. Stan has always been
one of our heros, a pioneer in the American jazz drumming tradition
of which we are proud to be part. He had a musical career most of
us can only dream of. Buy
This DVD is a rare treat for musicians who are fascinated
with the history of jazz and bebop, the history of drumming, of
NYC and LA in the forties, fifties, and sixties..it is full of anecdotes
and stories about those days, footage of and comments by guys like
Quincy, Miles, Charlie Parker, Hank Jones, Lalo Schefferin, etc.
What a great time it was to be a jazz musician, what a great time
to be alive. Highly recommended.
