Strong slices of work from the decade-spanning career of saxophonist David Liebeman and keyboardist Richie Beirach – recorded live at an early date at the Keystone Korner in 1976, and later on a range of global dates from the end of the 80s! Liebman and Beirach have a well-honed sound that benefits strongly from Dave's angular approach to reeds, especially soprano sax, and Richie's warmly crafted lines on the keys – always great on acoustic piano, but even nicer here on the few tracks that feature Fender Rhodes! About half the 3CD package is from 1976 – and features Liebman and Beirach with Frank Tusa on bass, Jeff Williams on drums, and Todd Barkan on percussion – on tracks that include "Lookout Farm", "The Iguana's Ritual", "Fireflies", "Pablo's Story", and "Night In Tunisia" – all longer numbers that run for well over ten minutes each. The second half features live dates from Germany, New York, and Tokyo – a few with just Liebman and Beirach in duo format, others with Ron McClure on bass and Billy Hart on drums. Titles include "Pendulum
", "Elm", "Pablo's Story", and "Invocation".
