The Dave Liebman Group, Sunday at the Bach

Press release

By on Tue, September 7, 2010

Dave Liebman has been called a “dedicated master” who has sustained a top-of-the-line reputation for four decades. A multiple Grammy nominee, Leonard Feather of Downbeat puts him “among the most important saxophonists in contemporary music” 
As a necessary component of his artistic life, David Liebman has continued to pursue his goal of employing a steady working group with a distinct body of music.  The Group will be playing from their 2009 CD, —”Turnaround” - The Music of Ornette Coleman on the Jazzwerkstatt label which includes arrangements of some Ornette classics set in a diverse assortment of styles and idioms in many cases with added harmonies. The CD set includes a haunting "Lonely Woman" with guitar synths and wooden flute; a "rubber blues" version of "Turnaround"; a burning Latin-based feel for "Una Muy Bonita" and the very beautiful "Kathlelin Gray."
In his liner notes Liebman say of Ornette’s music:  “there is a joyful spirit which permeates throughout . . . His music expresses an irrepressible joie de vivre, uplifting and mournful at the same time, playful and deadly serious-a full view of the human condition.
