CD Review



Jon Gilbert Leavitt

Review by Codi


Jon Gilbert Leavitt has more in "Pride" than a musical anthem, a musical GLBT history lesson brought together in a style reminiscent of Billy Joel's "We Didn't Start The Fire". The Lyrics entertain, educate, and emotionally charge a wonderful song packed with vision, heritage, and the obvious, Pride.

Jon Gilbert Leavitt: songwriter, pianist and piano performer who has received ASCAP's ASCAPlu$™ Award for "Pride" as a significant contribution to music and social awareness. Leavitt has played in venues ranging from pop/rock, cabaret, country/blues, new age and salsa. He has worked on music appearing in the independent film "My Dinner With Abbie" (1991), featured at the Berlin and L.A. Film Festivals and aired on PBS. Other music in his catalog is equally impressive and sure to make strong community impact, and I feel great market success. Jon's other music will be reviewed in a soon upcoming additional piece on the work of this talented and prolific artist. Look for interviews here in Equal Pride with Jon on his music, his Internet Radio presence, and also on long term relationships. Leavitt's voice brings clarity and a benevolent edge to his deep routed and soul touching lyrics.

"Pride" has maintained a secure place on the top 40 singles charts for 40+ weeks, reaching the #1 spot 2 weeks in a row (6/25/00 and 7/3/00)...and now both dance re-mixes have entered the charts- the FIRST TIME 3 versions of the same song are in the Top 40, according to Now it's available as part of the CD compilation MAINSTREAMING-Volume 1. Two new dance mixes of Jon's song "Pride" by The Frustrated Housewives and Aaron-Carl are complete. They're ALL available on one can get it on

"Pride" is a MUST HAVE item in every GLBT collection. The definitive anthem for the new millennium. Jon Gilbert Leavitt has done his homework on this piece. Online, the Lyrics, offer links providing information to deepen the historical importance and references in the song.
