"Leonhardt filled the air with the velvety tones and toe tapping melodies that would have made Gershwin nod with approval."

Super Concert lives up to billing at the Winnipeg Jazz Festival

Singer Jon Hendrick's closing third of the evening was a variety show unto itself. It began with the New York Allstars (pianist/leader David Leonhardt, bassist Eric Lemon and drummer Winard Harper, plus Jon Faddis and reedman David "Fathead" Newman), then moved into Hendrick's set, with brief guest appearances by Yolande Bavan (who replaced Annie Ross in that crucial trio with Dave Lambert).

The band on its own sounded great, with Newman's strong bop tenor and pretty, Dolphy-ish flute to the fore. Leonhardt was just astounding on piano.
