Errol Desmond Leblanc - as a young man his focus on life was most of all to be very well educated and to be well spoken. School and education was all that he thought about. It has been a long travelled road since his school days. He did not always aspire to be as a musician of any sort, whether it be playing the piano, the guitar, singing, etc. To him it was knowledge first. However, he studied to be an actor still not knowing what the future held. Since being discovered by three people while residing in New York, Lennie and Irv Zwillick and Irv Orlanick, who belived in his singing and performing. They introduced him to the Catskills Mountains in up-state New York where he performed at all of the top hotels and resorts. Since then Errol Desmond Leblanc has come a long way. He has written more than 100 songs, and can now call himself an author. His book will soon be published. It is called 'Up From The Ashes', poetry on his struggles to survive. Along with poverty in America. With Errol every thing can be accomplished. It is just a matter of thinking positive and whomever we choose to be associated with. The negative thoughts of others can destroy your career.We are who we asscociiate with. The influence for the title of this CD is his close relationship with someone while performing in Tokoyo, Japan for many years. P.S. Watch for Jazz CD, The True Elegance of Jazz.
