"Certainly no one playing jazz harmonica these days approaches the technical wizardry, stylistic breadth or improvisational creativity of Chicagoan Howard Levy. For this reason, Levy finds himself constantly in demand around the globe..."
— Chicago Tribune
Howard has been performing as a solo artist for more than 30 years for audiences worldwide. He moves freely between piano and harmonica, sometimes playing both simultaneously. His repertoire features original compositions reflecting the full range of Howard’s influences: Latin, Jazz, World Music, Classical, Folk and more.
“…certainly the most talented person on Earth who can play piano and harmonica, even playing both simultaneously at some points in the show…his abilities at the piano were truly amazing – between cascading arpeggios and quicksilver trills, he evoked a musical character halfway between Jerry Lee Lewis and Franz Liszt.” — The Daily Collegian, Northampton, MA
“Perhaps the highlight of the concert came from harmonica player and pianist Howard Levy, whose furious playing on the harmonica pushed an instrument just about everybody has stowed away in their homes to limits most people are unaware that the harmonica can reach.” — Smithtown Patch, Stony Brook, NY
