Review by James Nadal

Levy’s Acoustic Project tours internationally and has performed in a wide variety of festivals and clubs such as in U.S.A ,India, China, and Israel.

Levy’s acoustic project works in three formats: as a trio (guitar & flute & percussion) duo (guitar & flute), or solo performance. As a solo acoustic guitarist, Levy fuses a fascinating breadth of jazz and baroque-style polyphonic improvisation. His free movement between genres creates an exciting polyphonic texture that showcases Levy’s unlimited capabilities as an improviser. . Alone together - guitar solo , Here comes the sun - guitar solo

He is also an adroit electric guitarist, as can be heard on his album “The House on Lefferts Boulevard,” featuring legendary jazz saxophonist Dave Liebman  - The way it was - by Yosi Levy(audio)
