The quintessential contemporary jazzman, saxophonist David Liebman has spent his whole career playing with some of the best in the business. He spent extensive periods as a member of the Miles Davis and Elvin Jones groups. Since 1970 he as been associated as a leader with a succession of extraordinary groups from Open Sky Trio to Lookout Farm to Quest each of which has framed a distinct phase of his musical evolution. The Dave Liebman Group was formed in 1991 and pursues a very eclectic contemporary style. With Liebman, Randy Brecker (Trumpet), Marc Copland (Piano), Drew Gress (Bass), and Billy Hart (Drums), each member brings forth a wide range of talents, enabling the music to move in many exciting directions. Larry Nai of All About Jazz writes, "the Liebman Group is a closely-attuned band that plays challenging, colorful music, that seems capable of drawing the most blase of audiences into it's orbit."
