EXPANSIONS: THE DAVE LIEBMAN GROUPEmploying younger musicians in ones band is a time worn custom in jazz. In this case, NEA Jazz Master Dave Liebman is following in the footsteps of Miles Davis and Elvin Jones who mentored him in the early 1970s providing the kind of experience that can only happen on the bandstand. This is especially true in this era when the academy/conservatory is part of every young jazz musicians biography. Reaching across generations to both teach and learn is a time worn process in the jazz legacy. Along with long time Liebman bassist, Tony Marino and drummer Alex Ritz, the repertoire delves into the free music realm as well as the complex time signatures and harmonies being explored by the young artists of our time featuring original compositions and re-worked standards from the jazz repertoire.David Liebmans career has spanned over four decades, beginning in the 1970s as the saxophone/flautist in both the Elvin Jones and Miles Davis Groups, continuing as a leader since. He has played on nearly three hundred recordings with over one hundred under his leadership or co-leadership. In 2011, Liebman received the highest award a jazz musician can receive: NEA Jazz Master..but this is no look towards the past. EXPANSIONS exists in the present, pushing boundaries, toying with expectations and letting the spirit of the moment determine the course. - allaboutjazz.comScullers Jazz Clubs Boathouse 400 restaurant rekindles the magic of the great supper clubs with our Dinner and Show Package that enlivens all of the senses.
