Expansions

Posted by WVIA Admin on

Airs Thursday, January 22nd at 9p on WVIA-TV

Dave Liebman's new group looks towards the present generation of jazz musicians who have been schooled in conservatory and university settings. Lieb is continuing the time tested tradition of master/apprentice as he experienced in the 1970's with drummer Elvin Jones and Miles Davis, by reaching across generations to teach and learn from them. "EXPANSIONS" features the up and coming pianist Bobby Avey, reedman Matt Vashlishan, drummer Alex Ritz and a continuation of Lieb's long relationship with bassist Tony Marino. Conceptually, the repertoire traverses elements of free jazz and re-arrangements of standards all infused with the complex time signatures and harmonies being explored by the new jazz artists of our time.
