If you love a good piano concert, I’ve got the perfect CD for you! David Levin, owner of DLE, has recorded his breakout CD with spot-er-iffic music, featuring piano concertos of your favorite show tunes, standards and movie songs!
David Levin was a self-taught stride pianist who found himself at 22 in a musical “rut” unable to break out of that style and into one more commercially suitable for hotel lounges. In 1973, he was told about a great swing pianist from Benny Goodman and Artie Shaw Bands named Johnny Guarnieri who was playing nightly at a restaurant in N. Hollywood. After a few months of watching this piano genius five nights a week, Levin became Guarnieri’s 4th protege.
Featuring four Fred Astaire-Ginger Rogers film songs, two Cole Porter songs, two Irving Berlin songs (both from Top Hat) and two Jerome Kern songs, this CD will knock your socks off and bring you to your feet to dance the night away.
Romantic dinner for two?
The music is available right here, at the DLE Mercantile, where you’ll be able to purchase your own copy of David Levin’s CD. We can probably come up with a few good menus for 2 if you need help on the food selection, but you’ll know it’s right when you turn the music on.
45 years later, having performed for heads of state, Celebrities and at noted New York venues like The Rainbow Room, The Plaza Hotel and Harry Cipriani, Levin finally recorded his first commercial CD just a few days after hand surgery for a trigger thumb that would have ended his performing career. His hand surgeon found that Levin also had CMC joint issues but wasn’t yet a candidate for surgery. She recommended PUSH MetaGrip thumb braces and these have allowed Levin to continue concertizing and to record this CD including one “brutal” all-day session where he recorded 45 songs.
The best part of a good piano concert is always the person you share it with…Don’t listen alone!

Bring along a good friend, load the CD and drive the night away with Levin’s right and left-hand work on the keys keeping rhythm with the road!
Levin has become one of the foremost interpreters and performers of classic movie songs. One of the rare themes, Enchanted Cottage (1945) by movie composer Roy Webb, is featured on this CD as are three other movie songs–Laura, Somewhere In Time and The High And The Mighty.
