about

"At the Codfish Ball" is the culmination of many years of preparation, during which time I collected material and wrote arrangements. I've brought together an all-star lineup of talent to produce a TOUR DE FORCE that combines driving rhythm, lush harmony, and timeless melodies. Although most of my previous albums have focused on ragtime and early jazz, "At the Codfish Ball" is decidedly SWING, a prominent aspect of my musical persona virtually unexplored in my own recordings. -Dan Levinson
