L.D Levy - Peshtigo Blues & Cedilla - Pearl 1991 & 1993

In the early days of this blog, Sotise posted a superbe album from L.D Levy who is not the most popular jazz musician… On this lp that you can find here
he was teaming with Richard Davis that in the opposite needs no introduction.
Eleven years after here is the second chapter in the rediscovery process of L.D Levy’s music.
Those two cd self produced are obviously his last records.
Like in his preview recording chamber jazz and contemporary classical are strong influences.

L.D Levy recorded several lp in the late seventies and perhaps also some tapes, if someone have more music from him, it would be absolutely necessary to share here.

I'm in touch with L.D Levy since few days. He have not recorded after those two cd's and some of the last concerts he made were with Ed Blackwell and Don Cherry in the nineties.
