Paul Lieberman

Early in saxophone and flute player Paul Lieberman’s career during a session at Mickey Hart’s, Gil Evans commented to Airto “everything he plays sounds right”—and David Sanborn responded to a NY performance with a surprise kiss. Paul’s critically acclaimed new CD “Ibeji” reached multiple best of the year lists and generated nominations for Latin Jazz Flutist of the Year & Brazilian Jazz Album of the Year. It looks at Brazilian music and Jazz as twin children of Mother Africa separated at birth, raised in distant parts of the world and now reunited, with the stellar support Rufus Reid & Nilson Matta on bass, Duduka da Fonseca, Tim Horner, and Allman Brothers co-founder Jaimoe on drums, Joel Martin on piano, and Eugene Friesen on cello.
 Reviewers say "Lieberman [who] is a soulful player on any instrument, conveying deep emotional content...demonstrates his instrumental mastery and also reveals himself as a formidable composer" in this “stunning, heartfelt, and emotional” recording

Laurie Dapice: Parting the Veil

Read "Parting the Veil" reviewed by C. Michael Bailey

Vocalist Laurie Dapice's debut recording was an intensely personal affair. That is revealed both in her extensive liner notes and the music she presents here. First efforts require much of an artist and many debut recordings reflect the downside of the demands. Not so with Parting the Veil. Dapice presents herself a fully realized vocalist, arranger, ...

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place 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 effort that will help musicians 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 bottom right video ad). Thank you.
