Dr. Lenard Bowie is an amazing man! All you read about him though is mostly academic and business. The Lenard I know is a kind, gentle and appreciative person. Always helping with the community. Never speaking of how wonderful his talent really is. Always concerned and willing to help. You would be amazed at all the things he has done for the musicians in Jacksonville that are never mentioned.

I remember when he first got the idea of writing this book and for years we talked about it. I'm so happy for him that his book has now come to fruition and I am definitely looking forward to reading it.

It is an honor to have performed under the baton of Dr. Lenard Bowie. He has enriched my life and I am truly thankful for that but even more so, I am truly honored to have him as a good friend.
