Progrography

Dave Liebman
One in a long list of Miles alums who parlayed a short stint with the maestro into a long and fruitful career. Dave Liebman is probably best known for the soprano saxophone (yes, that phallic-looking thing that Kenny G puts in his mouth), though he often plays tenor and flute as well. Liebman has never been one to shy away from unusual instrumentation or concept albums, though his interest in standards shows an equally reverent side for jazz. The discs I've heard fall into the post-bop/fusion category and are at least one notch above the usual. By the way, the discography below is a work in progress, as a lot of these discs are delayed releases with European distribution.
