Mark Levine and the Latin Tinge: Hey, It’s Me

"I just wanted to leave another footprint in the sand," says pianist Mark Levine of his new album. This footprint moves to rumba, timba, songo, mambo, and straight ahead jazz, propelled by a group of inspired jazz veterans: Levine, percussionist Michael Spiro, bassist Peter Barshay, and drummer Paul Van Wageningen.
