13 year old guitarist Sean Levitt was improvising on a borrowed guitar at the Central Park fountain for a young attentive audience when he was spotted by ESP. While being auditioned, Sean mentioned his musical family, which included his father, drummer Al Levitt; his mother, vocalist Stella Levitt; his 15 year old drummer brother George; his singing sisters Michele (16), Minou (14) and Teresa (11); and his two younger brothers Billy (9) and Robin (6) who had not as yet chosen their instruments. Although Billy was convinced that if he could get his hands on a flute, he could play it.

Press Quotes


Across the date, Stella acquits herself through the guises of psych-folk, Astrud Gilberto impressions, and languid small-hours vocal jazz with equal and bare honesty. And that honesty is part of what gives this anti-war, flower-encrusted music its bite, though being supported by a crew of outstanding improvisers doesn’t hurt the Levitts’ cause either.
~ Clifford Allen, Bagatellen

"Another little gem from ESP Disk." - Damian Rafferty, FLY Global Music Culture

This is a delightful album, reflective of the time, progressive and diverse in many ways, and worth a revisit here, or as some sort of a reunion later in this life of this interesting musical family. – Michael G. Nastos, All Music Guide
