Title - Catching Leaves
Artist - Avi Wisnia

With Catching Leaves, Avi Wisnia returns with his poignant and long-awaited sophomore release.

Produced by acclaimed bassist/conductor Ken Pendergast, the collection is a tender and intimate ode to living in the moment, to surrendering to forces beyond our control and finding peace in growth, change, and acceptance.

Wisnia writes with a gentle touch, reflecting on love and loss with a soulful maturity, mixing hints of jazz, roots, and the Great American Songbook together into an organic swell thatís at once beautiful and bittersweet.

The result is a moving, intimate album shaped by the power of human connection and community, a riveting collection that calls to mind everyone from Rufus Wainwright and Teddy Thompson to Ron Sexsmith and Gabriel Kahane as it navigates darkness and doubt, faith and family, pain and resilience.

10. Simple Words
11. Just Another Daydream
12. Dindi
13. Goodnight
14. Sky Blue Sky [Bonus Track]

This quite mesmerizingly beautiful new album opens on the lusciously orchestrated, hushed title track Catching Leaves and the gentle R&B-pop bounce of Heat Lightning and backs those up seamlessly with the mid-tempo piano balladry of Come Home To, the tenderly euphoric Harvest Moon, the playfully upbeat Youíre Wrong, and then we get both the earnestly melancholic Somebody Elseís Fault and the jaunty Ď70s pop-imbibed Make Me Cry.

Next up is the lush, late night, smoky jazz club ambiance of How To Fight Loneliness and the ornate, mournful storytelling balladry of Itís Gonna Rain Today which are themselves backed perfectly by the mid-tempo hipsway of Simple Words, the finger-snapping, trumpet-led Just Another Daydream, the album rounding out on both the string and percussion-imbued Dindi and the free flowing Goodnight, coming to a close on the simply beautiful, vividly rhythmical bonus track Sky Blue Sky.
