"Funky, bluesy, hot, wild - call it whatever you like! Ron Levy''s music will keep you breathless. His subtitle "Wild Kingdom" is absolutely justified. The album "Live" was recorded more or less by chance - no planning, no arrangements, just the wild music of the trio, with a remarkable result."
Jurgen Wolf - Int''l Archive of jazz Organ
"Heavy Hammond work from Ron Levy -- one of America''s best recent groovers on the organ, and a player who''s firmly dedicated to a classic sound! Levy plays in territory that includes some of the more recent "jamband" styles of funk, but he''s also got an ear for the styles of the masters -- like Jack McDuff and Jimmy McGriff -- and as you''ll hear on this tasty live set, he definitely knows his way around the keyboard of the B-3! Tracks are long, with plenty of room for grooving -- and titles include "Sons Of Abraham", "Blues For BB", "Like Like Dope", "Gaucha Girl", "Confusions", and "Funky Monkey Boogaloo"."

On this ''live'' disc recorded at Boulder CO''s Mountain Sun Brewery, Ron Levy''s Wild Kingdom masterfully explores the vintage sounds of a killer tight B-3 organ trio with a big twist of the new soul-funky-groove vibe that is proving to be irresistible among those in the know.
Everyone from college students to traditional blues and jazz fans are testifying to the electric raw power of a ''live'' RLWK jam. A hip sound that is capable of "blending jazz, blues, hip-hop, Latin and even gospel music in ways that blow apart the stylistic boxes imposed upon music in America today" Ken Franckling (UPI).
