Joe Levinson is a top Chicago jazz bassist. Joe also possesses a very
keen sense of humor. Joe has poignant piece on the Jazz Institute of
Chicago website titled, " My Audition for Satchmo." This is a true account
and beautifully written up.
Let me second that, and add that Levinson is one of my favorite people to
hang with. When I first moved to Chicago many years ago, I was recently
divorced and so was Levinson; and our bachelor apartments were less than a
mile from each other. We hung out a lot.
He has a very quick moving mind and a great sense of humor. He is one of
those people who can talk with energy and conviction for as long as you'll
listen--BUT if you want to talk to Joe, he'll shut right up and listen to
you in return! Unusual. And pleasant.
