About the Album

"Samba de Beach" is the first track from jazz vocalist Allegra Levy’s album "Lose My Number: Levy Sings McNeil." Levy’s collaboration for her mentor with acclaimed jazz trumpeter John McNeil. Levy has penned words for nine of his previously published compositions which had no lyrics until now. With the exception of McNeil on three tracks, the album features an all-woman band: Carmen Staaf on piano, Carmen Rothwell on bass, and Colleen Clark on drums.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
