Daniel Levin Profiled and Interviewed


Cellist Daniel Levin has been a major presence on the New York scene for nearly two decades as an active bandleader and as an innovative sideman. His quartet has been active since 2001, having released an incredible eight records, the most recent of which, Live at Firehouse 12, will be released later this month on Clean Feed. His new solo record, Living, will appear on Smeraldina-Rima later in the Spring. Daniel plays in a duo with bassist Henry Fraser at Downtown Music Gallery on January 8, at 7 pm. He is also embarking for Norway later in January to play duo concerts there with violist Mat Maneri as well as a duo concert with Torbjörn Zetterberg in Stockholm on February 10, before the three of them join vibraphonist Matt Moran in Munich to kick off an extensive European tour with the quartet.
