Tony Levin Discography September 27, 2009Posted by wallofsound in Uncategorized.
Tony Levin was a British jazz drummer whose career started in the 1950s and he was still active up until his death in 2011. It is quite remarkable that there was no comprehensive online discography of his work until this one. Levin appeared on some of the best British jazz records of the last fifty years, and has played in bands of quite astonishing breadth of styles. In the 1960s he was a member of Tubby Hayes’ bands, appearing on what for me is one of the high points of British Jazz, Mexican Green. During the 1970s he appeared on a whole stream of wonderful records from the likes of John Taylor, Alan Skidmore, Norma Winstone, Gordon Beck, Neil Ardley, Stan Sulzmann as well as Nucleaus’ Labyrinth. Over the last fifteen years he has been a member of Mujician, as well as a large number of outstanding recordings of European free improvisation.
Here’s my decade by decade discography based upon records I have, or can find information about. Please do let me know if I have missed anything or made any mistakes. If there’s no cover art I would welcome contributions.
