Our veteran career saxophone player & educator Dave Liebman, from Brooklyn, continues on from NYC. Dave’s early years came up playing with the country’s jazz greats of the age. He continued, developing new musical styles. His music ranges from “pretty good stuff” to “way out there.” Even now, when he is on one of his “progressive” tracks, he can still be pretty sane listening. Click on a few tracks here to see for yourself. Dave is on the nation’s list of top 100 jazz sax players.
Dave has been a very strong performer during his career, playing several long stretches with groups. Some of these were groups he organized. In Dave’s later years he put more and more effort into educating the coming generation. He is now Artistic Director of the International Association of Schools of Jazz (IASJ), while playing on almost continuous international touring. Last month saw him in NY, Phily, Germany, and South Africa. (This month will be NYC, PA, Finland, Italy, France, Canada, and Chicago…)
Chris Cortez will be bringing the David Liebman story Sunday morning 31 Aug on KCSM’s “I’m Talkin’ Jazz” for you to hear first hand from one of this nation’s top career jazz saxophonist.
