David LiebmanPicture Show ... CD
Solid (Japan), 1984. New Copy ... $16.99
A really unusual solo album from Dave Liebman – one that doesn't just feature saxophones, but also a variety of other instruments as well – including piano, percussion, and even a bit of electronics! Each track has a different approach, and Dave is overdubbed on some – mixing flute and keyboards, piano and saxophone, and so on – with results that are very different than some of his other recordings – and which make the whole thing an overlooked standout from this point in his career. Titles include "Snake Charmer", "Legacy", "The Vanguard", "Spirit", "Blues N Dues", "Dissonant Discourse", and the three party "Ethnic Suite". CD

David LiebmanSolo – Memories Dreams & Reflections ... CD
PM/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1981. New Copy ... $16.99
David Liebman plays solo, but not in a way that's spare or lonely at all – as the record often features Dave overdubbing himself on a variety of instruments – including soprano sax, flute, Fender Rhodes, and other keyboards! Liebman jokingly refers to the record in the notes as "playing with myself", but the approach is much better than that – and instead creates one of the most personal, poetic albums we've ever heard from the legendary reedman. Titles include "Hiroshima Memorial", "Guided Dream", "Words", "The Power Of The Cross", and "Translucence". CD

David Liebman/Adam Rudolph/Hamid DrakeChi ... CD
Rare Noise (UK), 2019. New Copy ... $14.99 15.98
One of the most spiritual albums in years from saxophonist Dave Liebman – but maybe that comes as no surprise, given that he's working here with percussionists Adam Rudolph and Hamid Drake! The tracks are often grounded in percussion – used by both musicians at a less rhythmic level than you might expect, especially Drake – who always has a great way of evoking so many different sounds from his instruments. Rudolph brings in a bit of electronics – but never much at all, and always used in very subtle ways – and both he and Liebman play piano at points, on different tracks – while Dave blows soprano, tenor, and wooden recorder. Titles include "Flux", "Continuum", "Emergence", "Whirl", and "Formless Form". CD

✨✧ New Light (David Liebman)Live In Oslo ... CD
PM/Solid (Japan), 2006. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
You might not recognize the name of the New Light quartet – but the group's a great showcase for the later talents of saxophonist Dave Liebman – a straight, swinging group that has Dave joined in the frontline by Petter Wettre on tenor – alongside the mighty bass of Gene Perla, and the drums of Scott Neumann! Perla's rich tone really keeps things grounded, as the group make their way through some very long, live selections – with Liebman on soprano and wood flute, as well as tenor – on tunes that include "Oasis", "Sombra", "Fancy Free", and "Brite Piece".

Elvin JonesMr Jones ... LP
Blue Note, 1972. New Copy ... On March 13, 2020
A overlooked gem in Elvin Jones' Blue Note career – and an album that's virtually the blueprint for the Stone Alliance sound forged later in the decade by bassist Gene Perla and reedman Steve Grossman! Both players are working to full effect on this smoking little set – mixing some of the more spiritual modes of other group members with their own sharper-edged, funky-leaning styles – all held together perfectly by both Jones' tight work on drums, and his expansive musical vision! Other players are great too – and include Pepper Adams on baritone sax, David Liebman on flute and tenor, and Jan Hammer on acoustic piano – an instrument he handles with surprising subtlety and soul. Many cuts have a hard, choppy groove – and titles include a remake of "Gee Gee", plus "One's Native Place", "Mr Jones", and "What's Up – That's It". LP, Vinyl record album

Bob MosesBittersuite In The Ozone ... CD
Amulet, 1975. Used ... $14.99
A key piece of self-issued jazz from percussionist/pianist Bob Moses – the first record on his Mozown label, and an album that managed to travel incredibly in the underground jazz circles of the 70s. Moses has a great lineup of players working with him on the set – including vocalist Jeanne Lee, bassist Eddie Gomez, drummer Billy Hart, and hornmen Randy Brecker, Howard Johnson, and David Liebman. The set's got an introspective quality that often seems to double back on itself – free at times, but rhythmically circular at others – making for more tension than release, in a style that played well with crowds at the time. Titles include "Mfwala Myo La La", "Stanley Free", "Message To The Music Bizness", and "Bittersuite In The Ozone". CD

✨✧ Brian LynchOmni-American Book Club – My Journey Through Literature & Music ... CD
Hollistic Music Works, 2019. New Copy 2CDs ... Out Of Stock
Brian Lynch has really grown and grown over the years – not just as a musician, although his trumpet work is superb – but also as an arranger and greater visionary force in music, which is definitely the case in this double-length set! Lynch wrote and arranged the whole extended suite – which draws inspiration from the works of WEB DuBois, Ta Nehisi Coates, Albert Murray, Naomi Klein, Ralph Ellison, Amiri Baraka, and other writers who've shaped his understanding of out nation and culture – which is then expressed by Lynch with a great large group that features tenor and soprano from Gary Keller, alto and flute from Tom Kelley, trombone from Dante Luciani, and piano from Alex Brown – plus guest work from Regina Carter on violin, David Liebman on soprano, Jim Snidero and Donald Harrison on alto, and Orlando Maraca Valle on flute. The presence of all those great guests clearly illustrates a strong faith in Lynch's vision – and they all bring their very strong voices to songs that include "Crucible For Crisis", "pPening Up", "Africa My Land", "Woody Shaw", "Tribute To Blue", "The Trouble With Elysium", and "The Struggle Is In Your Name".

✨✧ Steve SwallowHome – Music By Steve Swallow To Poems By Robert Creeley ... CD
ECM (Germany), 1980. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A real standout in the classic catalog of ECM – not only because the record's got a slightly different inspiration than most, but also because it seems to unlock some especially beautiful moments from players who could sound different in other settings on the label! As the title indicates, the tunes here all take inspiration from the poetry of Robert Creeley – but never in a mode that's got the usual jazz meets poetry approach – as Sheila Jordan sings the lyrics when they appear, with a sense of her own power that's very different than a more standard recitation – and which, to us, really feels a lot like her great vocal performances with Steve Kuhn for ECM. Kuhn is also in the group on piano, and other musicians include David Liebman on saxes, Lyle Mays on keyboards, and Bob Moses on drums – all working under the superb leadership of bassist Steve Swallow – who really outdid himself with the depth of feeling in this project. Titles include "Colors", "In The Fall", "She Was Young", "Some Echoes", "Ice Cream", and "You Didn't Think". CD
