I purchased a Howard Levy tape about two years ago. It is titled "Howard
Levy - Harmonica Jazz". Produced by Tall Thin Records #TTR101, dated 1987.
(Sounds like his own company - as you may know Howard is tall, about 6'6"
and thin). It is a good quality, CRO2, tape. This was apparently produced
prior to his affiliation with Bela Fleck. The price on the tape is $10.00
and it lists the following address for information..
(Note: This tape is 6 yrs old - address may not be current)
8711 Avers Ave.
Skokie, IL 60076
Or try Farrell - $10.00 + $1.50 mailing charge (in his May 1992 catalog)
F & R Farrell Co.
P.O. Box 133
Harrisburg, Ohio 43126
Other artists on the tape are - Bob Gustafson - Piano, Eric Hochberg -
Bass & Paul Wertico, Drums. Besides Harmonica, Howard plays Piano, Jew's
Harp and Percussion on this album.
Side A - You're My Everything (Dixon, Warren, Young) 5:17
Donna Lee (C. Parker) 3:35
Epistrophy (T. Monk) 9:50
Side B - Wise One (J. Coltrane) 7:18
Resolution (J. Coltrane) 6:05
The Beauty Around Us (H. Levy) 4:07
Howard's Blues (H. Levy) 4:00
Total time = 39:32
I like it! - Jack Ely
