New Stan Levey DVD

StanArt Productions recently released “Stan Levey The Original Original,” a DVD documentary about the life and times of jazz bop drummer Stan Levey.

The documentary traces Levey from the birth of bebop through the Big Band era, to the “west coast, cool school” of modern jazz music.

Dizzy Gillespie, Miles Davis, Charlie Watts, Quincy Jones, Hank Jones, Bill Holman, Lee Konitz, Howard Rumsey, Bill Henderson, Lalo Schifrin, and many more are featured in special appearances. Film clips and photographs of many jazz musicians are captured on the DVD by photographers William Claxton and Herman Leonard, including many never before seen photographs from Levey’s personal collection.
