His songs have been covered by The Doobie Brothers, Michael Hedges, Joanne Rand, Leftover Salmon, Christy Moore (Ireland), Dick Gaughan (Scotland), and many others. He was named by Seattle Metropolitan Magazine as “One of the 50 Most Influential Musicians.”

In the tradition of Woody and Dylan, he cuts right to the heart with music you actually enjoy listening to. I’m a longtime admirer.”

    THE ALBANY JAZZ BIG BAND under the guidance of Musical Director and Conductor, Bob Levenson, presents a clear, swinging, and modern big band sound. This year’s performance at the Dance Palace will be the seventh annual dance concert and picnic. The band plays regularly at other community events—all around the East Bay. The musicians mostly hail from the Berkeley-Albany-El Cerrito corridor. Repertoire consists of classic big band swing by the great bandleaders and arrangers; blues, bossa nova and latin, bebop and post bebop music of the 60’s and later.  The band plays great danceable music, and features fine local jazz vocalists and instrumental soloists.
