Trey Anastasio recording with bassist Tony Levin

According to a diary post on his own site, Tony Levin is busy “Doing an album with guitarist Trey Anastasio, of the band Phish. He’s got a barn/studio out in the Vermont woods, and the multi-colored Autumn leaves makes it a perfect setting for having fun while making good music. Jerry Marotta is here playing drums, and the music, some jams, some songs, is coming out very well. Lots of recording, so I’ve been too busy to take photos – will do that today and get them uploaded!”

In the late ’70s Tony Levin joined Peter Gabriel’s band. He had met Peter through producer Bob Ezrin (with whom Tony had recorded Alice Cooper’s Welcome to My Nightmare, and Lou Reed’s Berlin.) Levin has played with Gabriel, both on the road and in the studio, since then. On that first Peter Gabriel album, he played some tuba as well as bass, and directed a short barbershop quartet version of a song.

On Peter Gabriel’s first album, he met Robert Fripp and, in 1980, after having played on Fripp’s solo album Exposure, he became a member of the ’80s incarnation of King Crimson.

Through the years, Levin has toured with quite a few artists including: Paul Simon (with whom Tony appeared in Simon’s 1980 film “One Trick Pony”), Gary Burton, James Taylor, Herbie Mann, Goro Noguchi, Judy Collins, Joe Yamanaka, Carly Simon, Peter Frampton, Anderson/Bruford/Wakeman/Howe, Tim Finn, Richie Samborra, and Claudio Baglioni.
