Review: Levin played synthesizer with the Gil Evans Orchestra for 15 years and he collaborated with several other musicians. On his 9th solo release, he explores textural grooves ranging from straight-ahead bop to funk, world-beat, and experimental. Brother Tony holds down the bass and Lenny White is on drums. Eight tracks are originals.
