Dave Liebman Expansions

Album Release Party

With saxophonist Dave Liebman.

NEA Jazz Master saxophonist Dave Liebman is a living legend who has recorded on over 500 albums, including more than 70 as a leader. After over two decades’ worth of Dave Liebman Group performances across the world (and nearly twenty albums), the saxophonist titan put together this exciting new band, called Expansions. Fitting in with jazz tradition–and honoring Miles Davis and Elvin Jones, who mentored Liebman in the 1970s–this group extends across generations and allows every member, regardless of seniority, to both teach and learn from one another. Tonight, the groups presents music from Earth, the new album which concludes Liebman’s decades-long project of musically depicting four aspects of nature intertwined with the human species: Fire, Water, Air, and Earth. The main compositional elements in Earth are color, texture, and intervallic constructions, with the composition titles like “Volcano,” “Galaxy,” “Sahara,” and “Concrete Jungle” suggesting their evocative and wide-reaching musical contents.
