 This week's "Live in the Square" concert series performer, David Leonhardt, is not only a longtime Easton resident, but a prolific, internationally known jazz performer. And, he has just put out a new CD.

Leonhardt will be performing an outdoor concert on Friday, June 28, from  7:30 to 9:30 p.m. on  Easton's Centre Square. He will be performing with his trio including piano, bass, and drums and playing songs from "Sounds Of Silence" as well as original compositions.

The free concert is part of the Easton Main Street Initiative Summer Concert Series.

"Sounds Of Silence" features  jazz versions of pop hits like "Blackbird" by the Beatles, "Hound Dog" by Elvis, "So Far Away" by Carole King, "Sounds Of Silence" by Simon and Garfunkel, and other songs familiar to Boomers and Millennials that aren’t often performed by jazz artists.

The familiar selections done in a new way give the recording an appeal that will please a wider audience than just fans of traditional jazz.

Leonhardt's new CD, his 24th publicly released full-length recording, as well as other selections, will be available to buy at the concert.

Leonhardt's recordings are also available through the artist's website and at CDBaby, as well as available for purchase digitally for download through iTunes.
