Celebrating the Work of Ron Levy
Congratulations to Ron Levy on the recent drop of his CD Rhumbango! Karen Garrity Music had the distinct pleasure of providing three string players to sweeten the track “Ladies Night Out”. This session was recorded at Adamos Recording by sound engineer Jerry Adamos.
Ron Levy is a very successful composer, pianist, and teacher of both piano and composition. He received his Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in Music Composition from UCLA. After graduating, Levy worked for five years at the Idyllwild School of Music and the Arts as their composer-in-residence. Since then he has accompanied many singers (including Barbara Morrison, Thelma Jones, Dee Dee McNeil, and Andrea Miller), been active in music programs at churches (as pianist-arranger for the Center For Spiritual Living Newport-Mesa and pianist/conductor for St. Mark Presbyterian’s Saturdays @5), performed locally in clubs and restaurants, maintained a private teaching studio, and written classical music. Recently he composed a Trombone Sonata and a Flute Sonata.
“Ladies’ Night Out” has a beautiful theme played by Greg Parman on flute and accentuated by the inclusion of a string trio (violinist Gail Gerding-Mellert, violist Rhea Ingram, and cellist Karen Garrity). Benjamin May’s short statement on bowed bass is a special added touch.
Bravo Ron! His CD can be found on CD Baby, Itunes, Amazon, and Spotify. Search for Ron Levy Jazz Quartet on these sites. They can also be purchased directly from Ron. Contact him through his website https://www.ronlevymusic.com/.
