Vivek Tiwary

Musicians On Call

Jonathan Leeder, as some of you may already know, is "my man," my main contact at the movie ~ producer/screenwriter Vivek Tiwary's right-hand man; his "Mr Fixit" if you will.

Jonathan also works as a music journalist, and writes a weekly column for The Grand Street News, among other publications.

Below is an article of his from last month detailing his impressions of the talented group "Musicians On Call" ~ a charitable organization which, coincidentally, was co-founded (with Michael Solomon) by none other than our own above-mentioned Vivek himself! :)

So! Let me know what YOU think.
