Jay Leonhart: Great Duets

On Great Duets Leonhart gets cozy with some old and new pals like Bill Charlap whipping along on “Confirmation,” Gene Bertoncini gliding in and out of Leonhart’s lead-in to “Stella by Starlight,” and Mike LeDonne waltzing through “My Romance.” Leonhart’s a foil not a backdrop for Joe Williams on “5 O’Clock in the Morning,” he beats Eddie Higgins to the last word on “If Dreams Come True,” and solos hard on a honky-tonk “Everything Happens to Me,” with Norman Simmons.
