David Liebman Big Band Tuesday 9/30 & Wednesday 10/1 at Birdland!

September 28, 2014

The New York-based David Liebman Big Band (DLBB) under the direction of saxophonist Gunnar Mossblad is made up of some of New York’s most experienced and creative jazz musicians – performers who are recording artists in their own right. The DLBB features original compositions by Liebman, covering his various periods of his forty-plus year career. The arrangements by such well known artists such as Vince Mendoza and Jim McNeely feature Lieb out front on soprano sax. Both the first recording Beyond the Line (Omnitone) and the followup Live: As Always (Mama Records) have received critical acclaim. What makes the music interesting beyond the stellar performances is that each arrangment is by a different musician, setting the stage for interesting contrasts between selections, all reflecting the grand scale of Lieb’s eclectic tastes and skills. The DLBB breaks the bonds of traditional big-band sounds. See them LIVE this week at Birdland!
