iTunes is helping us celebrate by featuring Leslie as the iTunes Free Discovery Download of the week. That means you get the song "Hit the Spot" FREE just by clicking below.

Check out what iTunes has to say about Leslie Mendelson...

Our Discovery Download puts the focus on a different genre each week, offering up a free track we think is worth your attention. Any recording that begins with an old-fashioned walking double bass line already sounds like a winner to us. Add suave yet understated drumming, crisp acoustic guitar comping, and, most importantly, singer/songwriter/pianist/guitarist Leslie Mendelson's spirited voice, and one gets a song that does indeed, as advertised, "Hit the Spot." The bluesy piano and boozy horns that come in later fortify the song's adult-pop brilliance, which will make listeners frequently click "repeat."
