"Levin’s approach is a classic one, and any lover of the golden era of bebop piano of the 1940s and 1950s will love this CD."
--guitarist Davy Mooney
The Alex Levin Trio needs no introduction to lovers of jazz - they've been around playing and recording for many years now. This new album is for the `everyone' out there - whether labeled jazz lovers or no. The songs on this album are from the American Songbook, songs we all know and love and now there is more of a reason to love them. That reason is the smooth and supple sound Alex Levin finds in the keyboard and translates that into something entirely new, fresh, and better. And that is probable why he calls this album Refraction, which is defined as the turning or bending of any wave, such as a light or sound wave, when it passes from one medium into another of different optical density.
