A list of the major musical figures that local legends the Levin Brothers have played with would easily fill the length of this page. So let's just put forth a couple of choice names: Bassist Tony, well known for his years with King Crimson, also worked with John Lennon and Peter Gabriel, and keyboardist Pete played with Gil Evans, Jimmy Giuffre, and Miles Davis. Last year, the siblings decided to get together in the studio and revisit the cool jazz that originally inspired them to pick up their instruments as kids back in the 1950s. The swinging sessions resulted in their self-titled debut as a duo, which, outside of one King Crimson cover ("Matte Kudasai"), is composed of original material. Its release finds the pair celebrating by making this, their first 2015 area appearance under the Levin Brothers banner, at the Rosendale Café. (Ethnic folk troupe Tarantata tantalizes March 7; dumbek master Raquy dazzles March 28.) 8pm in Rosendale.
