Not sure what to say?

The Saxohpne and Singapore is not the same without you OD. Gone are the days

When I was in college back in the 70's I discovered O'Donel Levy. This morning I came across an old album-Windows and started playing and it brought back the beautiful music. When I googled and saw that he passed last year...so sad. He will live on in his music and the beautiful memories it creates.

Thank you for filling the world with your beautiful music. I am forever thankful to have been touched by your music and you will be greatly missed

I spent the years from 1990 through 1993 in Singapore as an expat, and I used to go see him play at the Saxophone Bar regularly. That little bar was always packed when he played! It was a railroad car-shaped room with a long bar down the side, and a narrow stage behind the bar, barely deep enough for a musician on a chair, or a drum set, raised up about 4 feet off the ground. There would reign O'D, sitting in his chair with his guitar and microphone. The rest of the band would all be single...

You were the greatest and will be missed dearly. Your family remains in our prayers. Love, Christine G. Padua and Juan D. Lopez, Glendora, California.

O'donnell was a dear friend in high school and I sang with his band on sophomore night. His endearing personality remains even after in death. For some reason I thought of him today. So sorry I didn't know of his passing Great muscian. Patricia Harris

O'Donel was an inspiring human with great talent. I have many wonderful memories of time spent with him in Singapore. With love always clare

O'D and his band gave us one of the best times at Saxophone bar, Singapore at a time when there was not much happening in the music scene. He would play to a packed sardine crowd all cramped by the bar while he played his sax on top of the tiny bar.
Thank you O D, blessed journey! Thank you for the the Jazz, the buzz and the wonderful memories!
