Dave Leibman Big Band

by

The club is wrapping up a stretch of Wednesday gigs dedicated to large ensembles, and the veteran saxophonist leads a rich blend of reeds, brass, and rhythm with his ever-swirling soprano. As he mentions in the notes to the new As Always, having younger arrangers reconfigure some of your classics is a nice piece of luck indeed, but Leib’s mighty horn kicks just as much kinetics as his mildly unusual charts.
