23 febbraio 2011


Si tiene stasera il primo concerto in memoria dello scomparso Tony Levin, nel pub di Birmingham dov'era in calendario una sua esibizione in trio con Paul Dunmall e Nick Jurd. Lo rimpiazzeranno il figlio Miles, anch'egli batterista, e Mark Sanders, altro batterista. Un più esteso omaggio da parte di amici e colleghi è in preparazione per i prossimi mesi.

The Jazz Club Session at the Rainbow on Wednesday 23rd February originally booked with Tony Levin will now feature both his son Miles Levin and Mark Sanders on drums playing with Paul Dunmall on saxophone and Nick Jurd on double bass. The Nick Jurd Quartet will start the concert with an opening short set. This concert with Tony Levin’s son, Miles, and close associates Paul Dunmall and Mark Sanders and the Nick Jurd Quartet, students from the Jazz Department at Birmingham Conservatoire, will act as a very fitting tribute to Tony Levin. The session will start at 9pm and ticket income will be donated to Blue Chairs: Shropshire Blood Trust Fund. A memorial concert for Tony where many of his friends and colleagues will play is planned for later in the year.
