Jay Leonhart

The turning point which propelled musician Jay Leonhart to take up the bass was hearing Ray Brown with the Oscar Peterson Trio in 1955. He has since become a superior bassist, a witty lyricist, and a charming singer. He has played with musicians from all genres and has been on the New York jazz scene for almost five decades. On this 2001 Piano Jazz, he performs his composition “Blues for Marilyn.”
