Guitar virtuoso Udi Levy to release new album

Rock album represents a first for a popular New York City guitarist known for his smooth jazz style.

NEW YORK, Jan. 14, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Smooth jazz guitarist Udi Levy has announced he will be releasing a new instrumental album at the beginning of the year. Titled "A Sudden Transition," this album features top session musicians from Los Angeles and New York City in what is Levy's first venture into the rock music genre.

The album will be available in all premier electronic music stores and on his official website. 

"I'm confident my fans will be thrilled with the result," says Levy. "In crossing the musical divide between jazz and rock we bring alive the shared heritage of both—a labor of love for any jazz impressionist." The collection of uniquely original compositions shows mastery of both the instrument and the rock medium.

Udi Levy plays regularly at The Bitter End, The Groove NY, Cutting Room and other noted jazz and rock venues around New York City and beyond. With a decade of experience as an artist and performer in the smooth jazz circuit, he has more than thirty original jazz compositions to his credit including three hit radio singles.

After the successes of his second jazz album "Ahava" and a hit single, "Moment We Touch," which placed in the top ten on smooth jazz charts—Levy toured nationwide. "Smooth Jazz Tales," his prior album, likewise received critical acclaim and has been featured on television's Music Choice Cable Channel. His first smooth jazz single, "As Simple as That," is still getting worldwide attention.

"I've been through a lot of changes, musically as well as in my private life, this new album really captures the changes I've been through."

"I want to establish that there are no boundaries. Beyond jazz, beyond even blues and rock—I'm first and foremost a guitar player," he says.
