Pushing the depths of the underground jazz scene, cutting edge New York City-based Out to Lunch will be releasing its third album, No One Left Behind, on one of the finest indie record labels, Mesa Recordings. Launching the record on the hallowed stage of the Blue Note, August 3, 2012, and touring it extensively through North American, No One Left Behind fuses dance music with improvisational imagination creating a sound that hits both the mind and feet. Tracks such as In Da House" and It's a Jungle Out There" move effortlessly from the world of house to break beat, while the title track No One Left Behind and Bagga Onions tip their hat to dub and funk.
Bandleader David Levy has outdone himself once again on Out to Lunch's third release. This time drawing on influences from as far as Ghana and Nepal, yet as well keeping it local through using the vocal genius of Damon Cicero Scott, whom Levy discovered busking in the subways of New York. Along with his improvisation forays on woodwinds (saxophone, bass clarinet and bansuri flute), Levy also demonstrates his deft mastery of electronics through his manipulation of Ableton Live.
