I first met Mr.levy in the early 1970’s when I moved to New York from Louisiana. It was at a Nancy Wilson concert. He became one of my Hero’s. I’m so grateful I spent what ever little time I did with him while he was here. When he sat for an interview with me (The JaRon Eames Show) after receiving the NEA award , it was and will always be one of the best moments in my career. I deeply respected Mr Levy, and he will be missed. My sympathy goes out to Mrs. Levy and family.
