Legendary songwriter/producer/recording artist Leon Ware will make a rare Los Angeles concert appearance on Tuesday, October 19 at 8:30 pm at the Catalina Bar & Grill as part of the launch of the next phase of his extraordinary career.� Early next year, Ware will release the lovingly produced A Kiss in the Sand, a generous 15-song collection comprised of original songs performed in a Brazilian jazz setting.� All those in attendance at the show will receive a free copy of the album as part of the admission price.� Ware, who wrote hits for Marvin Gaye, Michael Jackson, Quincy Jones, Minnie Ripperton, and Maxwell, amongst many, many others, has found his music to be a favorite amongst hip-hop artists as his songs have formed the basis of cuts by G-Unit, Ice Cube, Tupac, Xzibit, Aaliyah, and many more.� The new album was produced by Ware, who wrote or co-wrote the compositions.� His voice is in fine form, silky and smooth, revealing a sensitive and sensual romantic, while the tracks set an exotic jazzy tone.� Usually a reclusive studio cat, the release of the new project marks an emergence and a new day in the spotlight for Ware.�
