“a very respectable album that continues the breath of life for Porter and his music.” Johm Book thisisbooksmusic.com

“A top notch listening jazz date for those times you just need to mellow out with something comfy that gives more than it demands.  Well done.”
CHRIS SPECTOR, MIDWEST RECORD



David Leonhardt’s CD is a winner!  It’s going to get a lot of airplay.
~Dave May, WHFC 91.1 FM

...I LOVE THIS STUFF!!! jim compton-schmidt, kfsr 90.7 and 88.1 kfcf

Love for Sale" is an excellent way to start the CD.  I have to say I really like the way the mixing was done by engineer Kent Heckman.  My favorite vocal cut is "You'd Be So Nice To Come Home To." Needless to say, this will be getting added for WUEV next week.
~Josh Woody, WUEV Evansville, IN
 
Wow , wow, wow that is all I can say about David Leonhardt's new album.
~George Middleton, KLBC Long Beach, CA
 
Pianist DAVID LEONHARDT is a man with a commitment to good music.   I never tire of hearing the music of Cole Porter, especially when it is given the kind of ride given to it by Leonhardt and company. Jersey Jazz - Joe Lang

“a sophisticated and classy take on 12 songs by Porter.” Dave Howell Special to The Morning Call
