Saxophonist David Liebman’s career has spanned over four decades, beginning in the early ‘70s with his “apprenticeship” period performing and recording in the groups of drummer Elvin Jones (“Live At The Lighthouse”) and Miles Davis (“On The Corner”). Since then he has lead his own groups (Lookout Farm; Quest;The Dave Liebman Group) featuring musicians such as John Scofield, Richie Beirach, Billy Hart, Adam Nussbaum, Al Foster, John Abercrombie and Vic Juris. In 2011, Liebman received the NEA Masters of Jazz Award.
David has been featured on nearly three hundred and fifty recordings, of which he has been the leader or co-leader on one hundred fifty with several hundred original compositions published. His repertoire is among the most eclectic of contemporary artists ranging from original adaptations of standard material to 20th century inspired classical music; from fusion to his own big band and free jazz ensembles.« Back to Events
