Although Donna recorded many demo records in her early twenties with many stalwarts of the New York jazz scene, this is her first commercial release (and long overdue one might add.) She practically grew up in the New York's Greenwich Village Jazz Scene. Married to Jay Leonhart, bassist and songwriter extraordinaire, she's the mother of Carolyn and Michael two of the most talented musicians of the young generation.


Donna Leonhart�s first album Bein� Green was recently named �Record of the Month� on France�s FIP network.
