descriptions, reviews, &c.

"Daniel Levin is "a samurai with a calligrapher's brush in his hand instead of a sword," writes Ed Hazell in his liner notes for Inner Landscape. It couldn't be truer: this is improvised music with force and grace in equal measure. The music on Inner Landscape reveals myriad dimensions in a split-second; some are undoubtedly idiomatic, namely jazzy or proto-classical; others are totally unclassifiable. The result is transcendent and uplifting, a singularly unique and personal statement.

On his trio and quartet records, Levin has already shown that he is one of the most important and original voices on the cello. What we have here on his first solo record is further confirmation of that status. Considering that this complete musician is also a talented composer, the path taken of free improvisation, with no discernable safety net, resulted in a personal challenge. The truth is he improvises "compositionally," a not very common talent. "Spontaneity" and "formal complexity" aren't usually associated with one another, but Levin has the rare ability to combine the two, so a whole world opens up to our ears. Inner Landscape will certainly be considered a referential album in years to come. What we have here is an historical edition."-Clean Feed


Artist Biographies:

"Daniel Levin is "one of the outstanding cellists working in the vanguard arena" (All About Jazz), "ridiculously fluent, virtually overflowing with ideas" (New York City Jazz Record) and "very much the man to watch." (Penguin Guide to Jazz). No matter what setting he plays in, cellist Daniel Levin occupies a musical space bordered by many kinds of music, but fully defined by none of them.

"Demonstrating an impressive breadth of texture and contrast, the cellist Daniel Levin comes well prepared for a career in jazz's contemporary avant-garde." (Nate Chinen, The New York Times).

Elements of European classical music, American jazz, microtonal and new music, and European free improvisation all figure prominently in his unique sound. As critic John Sharpe observes in The New York City Jazz Record, "he invokes all manner of musics with prodigious skill: jazz, classical, improv, noise, vocal chorus. His technique is unquestioned and he revels in the physicality of the instrument. Those with an adventurous streak or interest in the outer reaches of the cello universe will find much to savor."

Born in Burlington, Vermont, he began playing the cello at the age of six. In 2001, he graduated with a degree in Jazz Studies from the New England Conservatory of Music, and arrived on New York City jazz scene shortly therafter. Since then, Daniel has developed his own unique voice as a cellist, improviser, and composer. Ed Hazell noted upon release of Levin's first record as a leader, "Cellist Daniel Levin is a major new voice on his instrument and in improvised music." He has performed and/or recorded with Billy Bang, Borah Bergman, Tim Berne, Anthony Braxton, Gerald Cleaver, Andrew Cyrille, Mark Dresser, Ingebrigt Haker Flaten, Tony Malaby, Mat Maneri, Joe Morris, William Parker, Ivo Perelman, Warren Smith, Ken Vandermark, and many others. Daniel is the recipient of a 2010 Jerome Foundation award."
