Dave Liebman

Born:

David Liebman was born in Brooklyn, New York on September 4, 1946. He began classical piano lessons at the age of nine and saxophone by twelve. His “epiphany” was hearing John Coltrane perform live in New York City clubs such as Birdland, Village Vanguard and Half Note as a teenager. Throughout high school and college, Liebman pursued his jazz interest by studying with saxophone guru Joe Allard as well as jazz musicians Lennie Tristano and Charles Lloyd. Upon graduation from New York University (with a degree in American History), he began to seriously devote himself to the full time pursuit of being a jazz artist. In the early 1970s, Liebman took the leading organizational role as Founder and President of Free Life Communication, a cooperative of several dozen young cutting edge musicians intent on performing around New York in venues outside the traditional jazz club situation

Dave Liebman tra Maestri e allievi

Read "Dave Liebman tra Maestri e allievi" reviewed by Neri Pollastri


Classe 1946, Dave Liebman viaggia verso i settantacinque anni, ma li porta con una leggerezza e un'energia che gli permettono un'invidiabile produttività e, soprattutto, un encomiabile e continuo livello qualitativo dei suoi lavori. I tre che prendiamo qui in considerazione sono tutti di uscita recente, anche se la loro registrazione risale in due casi--entrambi live--a qualche ...

Paul Dunmall, Percy Pursglove, Olie Brice, Jeff Williams: Palindromes

Read "Palindromes" reviewed by John Sharpe


Bassist Olie Brice had an inkling that it might be worthwhile introducing two of his collaborators who had never played together before, British reed titan Paul Dunmall and American drummer Jeff Williams. It proves devastatingly correct on Palindromes. They unite, together with trumpeter Percy Pursglove, on a collective live album--recorded at London's Cafe Oto, in February ...

Dave Liebman: Placing Free Jazz and the Avant Garde in Musical and Historical Perspective

Read "Dave Liebman: Placing Free Jazz and the Avant Garde in Musical and Historical Perspective" reviewed by Victor L. Schermer


Like free jazz, this interview arose spontaneously from an informal “how are you doin'" telephone conversation between saxophonist Dave Liebman and All About Jazz contributor Vic Schermer. Schermer phoned Liebman to compliment him on his new e-book The Art of Skill: Establishing the Mindset for Unleashing the Music Inside You published by Michael Lake, and how ...

Sizeable Outfits, Enviable Outcomes: Large Ensembles In Pursuit Of Excellence

Read "Sizeable Outfits, Enviable Outcomes: Large Ensembles In Pursuit Of Excellence" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky


Perhaps nothing better symbolizes dogged persistence than the proliferation of large ensembles in every corner of the jazz world. To take on this kind of work can and should be considered injudicious for the rationally-minded, as the investments--time-wise, organizationally, financially, mentally--are beyond compare. But just because the dollars and sense don't add up doesn't mean it's ...

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
