Critics are raving about David Leonhardt’s new CD ‘Bach To The Blues” Improvisations on Classical Themes

“Pianist David Leonhardt presents a tasteful marriage of classical music and jazz, sprinkled with a touch of the blues, an improvisational statement on classical themes that is surprisingly entertaining.” Edward Blanco All About Jazz

, they are a very tight jazz trio that will hold your attention and inspire you with their way of doing these tunes. Rotcod Zzaj-IMPROVIJAZZATION Nation

. With Bach to the Blues, David Leonhardt uses the jazz imagination to reinvent classical themes, and in doing so, creates new and delightful music. Andrea Canter jazzpolice.com

“…lovingly interprets Bach preludes, Chopin Mazurkas, and music by Beethoven, Schubert, Satie, and Pachelbel into a jazz idiom. What is amazing is not that it works so well, but how right it all sounds.” Steve Siegel The Morning Call

This is a thoroughly enjoyable album, the musicianship is very good indeed and should appeal to jazz and classical music listeners alike. ~John M. Peters, The Borderland (Musicwatch column)

“Leonhardt fuses two of the greatest art forms of all time to make some of the most beautiful music of the year. “
~Jon Norton, WGLT Normal, IL

“ Classy stuff, presented with style... The result is strangely inviting...” LMNOP.com

“Fun stuff that’s a first class diversion from the mainstream… jazzed up classics after hours style.” MIDWEST RECORD?CHRIS SPECTOR


“…it decides to settle into a Friday evening groove and one wishes it would last forever…, and it sounds great. Thisbooksmusic.com
“…a dangerous thing to do, inviting the ire of both classical and jazz listeners but with just enough improvisation and musical personality to appeal to jazz listeners. Leonhardt does it with class.” jsojazzscene.org
“The performances are wonderfully conceived and executed, resulting in an album that will satisfy listeners who love jazz or classical music…” Joe Lang -Jersey Jazz
