He toured and made recordings with John Klemmer, Art Pepper, Roy Haynes, Dave Holland, Ray Brown, Charlie Haden and others, and was a founding member of Free Flight, the award winning jazz combo formed in the early 1980's. Presented here is Leviev's rare 1982 solo album focusing entirely on the music of the great American composer Irving Berlin. All selections newly remastered.
