MUSIC REVIEW BY Don Lerman, Cadence

The Budman/Levy Orchestra do full musical justice to the compositions and arrangements of Jeremy Levy on "From There to Here." Saxophonist Alex Budman, who formed this big band with Levy in the mid-2000s, solos on most cuts, presenting a full tenor tone (soprano on some selections) and building his solos judiciously and with an awareness of the flow of the piece. The writing of Levy, who composed nine of the eleven selections and arranged all of them, is characterized by an abundance of appealing melodies and rhythmic grooves and much interesting musical development. “Idle Time,” a contemplative piece with rich harmonies and well-placed trumpet section unisons, and “It’s Like That,” a spirited pop/rock vehicle inspired by John Scofield’s electric guitar playing, are examples of the wide range of Levy’s writing talents, which are well-showcased by this top-notch LA-based big band.
