The Bop Arts, Inc. Jazz in the Atrium series continues with a rare opportunity to hear saxman/flautist Dave Liebman in an organ trio setting with Phil Haynes and Steve Adams on March 24th at 8:00 pm. I really enjoyed hearing Liebman's high energy set when he appeared here in last year's RIJF with his quartet. Downbeat has called Liebman "one of the most important saxophonists in contemporary music...a leader and artist of integrity and independent direction." He has made numerous recordings as a leader and has played with Elvin Jones, Miles and Chick Corea. Check out the cuts on Liebman's MySpace page and this conversation with Ted Panken on Jazz.com. This is a great opportunity to hear him in a unique setting, both in terms of the group he's bringing and the acoustics and setting of the Bop Shop Atrium. It should be a great show.
Come out on Tuesday March 24th at 8:00 pm in the Bop Shop Atrium, 274 N Goodman St. in Village Gate. Please bring a $10 donation to Bop Arts, Inc. (the nonprofit Bop Shop owner Tom Kohn has created to keep bringing us innovative music).
