In The Moment
Herb Young

"In The Moment" is quite different. The music here is very much in the

Bill Evans vein. Leonhardt is quick to admit that Bill Evans was a big influence on him.

The tunes, for the most part, are originals by the leader. The trio functions much in the

same way as the trios did led by Mr. Evans, that is very much integrated. They compliment

each other beautifully. One would not mistake Mr. Leonhardt's touch with that of Mr. Evans.

If anything, Bill Evans had a softer touch but this is not to take anything away from Dave. He

is his own man, not a copist.


Both of these albums are recommended. . Do yourself a favor and get in touch with this very personable

artist
