Born 1946 in Brooklyn, NY, Dave Liebman is one of the most important saxophone-players of today. He played at the side of all big names in Jazz over the last decades: Miles Davis, Chick Corea, Richie Beirach, Al Foster, Billy Hart, John Scofield, to name a few. He is present on more than 300 records and as well is one of the heroes of all young saxophone students worldwide. His technical skills and his creativity appears to be without limitations, his range of expressions, from classical influences to avantgarde, is unique.

This brand new Trio Album presents two other real giants on their instruments and known to every serious jazz connaisseur: Steve Swallow on bass and Adam Nussbaum on drums.

Press reviews

"Although this program is very much played by a trio whose members are of equal importance, Dave Liebman is the first among equals, being the lead voice much of the time. The music is often respectful and more conservative than expected, performed mostly at a quiet volume and with subtle interplay. Only the closing "BTU" gets especially heated and, even there, Liebman's tone is fairly mellow. Liebman (heard on tenor, soprano, and flute), bassist Steve Swallow, and drummer Adam Nussbaum had played together previously in many different settings and their familiarity with each other's improvising styles is apparent for they communicate very well, making even the more spontaneous performances sound a little planned out and logical. This intriguing set is worth several listens."
