Men, Women, and Girl Singers
“Men, Women, and Girl Singers: My Life As a Musician Turned Talent Manager” — John Levy’s life story written for him by his wife, Devra Hall, with a foreword by Quincy Jones.
“Devra has been my best friend and confidant for more than 20 years now. If anyone knows me, she does. She has given me the gift of her words and she has used those words, unselfishly, to communicate my thoughts, my memories, and my life – from my perspective. So while I did not dictate these pages, what you have here is truly my autobiography.” — John Levy
“John Levy is a well-placed figure in the days and nights of big-time jazz….”Men, Women and Girl Singers: My Life as a Musician Turned Talent Manager,” is brimming with anecdotes and insight because this is a guy who was there.” — Tony Gieske, The Hollywood Reporter
