Deacon Blues

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Ken Dryden
Pete Levin hasn't done a lot of recording under his own name, even though he's been a professional musician for decades. But this veteran of both jazz and pop eschews musical boundaries in this wide-ranging outing on Hammond organ, assisted by guitarists Joe Beck or Mike DeMicco, electric bassist Tony Levin, drummer Danny Gottlieb, and percussionists Ken Lovelett and Carlos Valdez. From the world of rock, Levin offers a snappy, grooving treatment of Donald Fagen's "Deacon Blues" and a laid-back rendition of Brian Wilson's "Sail on Sailor" that borders on smooth jazz. His catchy reworking of impressionist composer Erik Satie's "First Gymnopedie" takes this familiar 20th ...

His catchy reworking of impressionist composer Erik Satie's "First Gymnopedie" takes this familiar 20th century piece into a completely new direction. Levin's "Might Have Been" is a dark, bluesy vehicle for Beck. His interpretations of two Jimmy Giuffre compositions also merit praise. The playful conclusion is a straight-ahead setting of the decades-old standard "Mean to Me." This is a fun outing by a musician who needs to get under the spotlight a bit more frequently.
