Album Review

Originally put out as an LP in 1987 and reissued as a CD a decade later, this set of duets by David Liebman (on soprano and flute) and pianist Richie Beirach finds the longtime associates in prime form. The length of the program (40 minutes) might be in the LP range but the playing is of the highest order. Liebman and Beirach explore seven superior standards including "'Round Midnight," John Coltrane's "India," a heated "Oleo" and a medley of "Lover Man" and "Some Other Time." None of the performances are at all predictable and there is plenty of chance-taking (along with reverence for the melodies) by both masterful improvisers. This lesser-known sleeper is highly recommended.

Saxophonist and educator David Liebman is a forward-thinking artist whose advanced improvisational style and association with trumpeter Miles Davis in the '70s combined to make him one of the most influential and successful jazz musicians of his generation. Heavily influenced by John Coltrane, Liebman has moved from tenor saxophone to soprano and flute throughout his career and more often than not played in a progressive, post-bop style that touched on fusion and avant-garde jazz.
