Review from Percussive Notes (2021):
This short work for solo vibraphone is light, fun, and sweet. As is typical in solo jazz vibraphone, the performer will simultaneously perform melody and accompaniment. Beyond this challenge of coordination and voicing, it is not overly technically demanding. There are a few brief passages with octaves, as well as a middle section with a written-out solo (the transcriber notes that the performer may improvise a solo instead). “Leaf” works well to introduce an undergraduate to the genre, but is satisfying enough for the professional performer.
