Levin-Torn-White – Self Titled

by Chuck Dauphin

Fans of Rock & Roll are sure to love what they find here. A collaboration between Alan White, legendary member of Yes, Tony Levin, and David Torn, this collection features three of the genre’s finest instrumentalists in rare form all the way throughout.

The opening interlude, “No Warning Lights,” helps to get things going, and sets up the high tech sound of “Ultra Mullett.” (I love that title!) It gets even better from there. “White Noise” cranks up the guitars a little more, and also features some thumping drum noise from Levin.

Other highlights include the dramatic twists and turns of “The Hood Fell,” as well as the sedate feel of “Convergence,” and the free-wheeling (and interestingly titled) “Prom Night Of The Centipedes.” Perhaps the best cut, or the one where each member gets to show their instrumental prowess to the masses, is “The Eggman Cometh.” If you appreciate the work of either of these three, give this disc a listen. You will likely wind up becoming a fan of all of them before the disc is over!
