“Wholly cognitive of his music’s inert ability to rouse a myriad of cinematic possibilities and recall a legion of influences, from Miles Davis, Elvin Jones, to John McLaughlin and more, NEA Jazz Master, statesman, and soprano saxophonist/composer Liebman allows the listener to approach…. from two contrasting lines of thought.” – All About Jazz

David Liebman’s career has spanned over four decades, beginning in the 1970s as the saxophone/flautist in both the Elvin Jones and Miles Davis Groups, continuing as a leader since. He has played on nearly three hundred recordings with over one hundred under his leadership or co-leadership.

Liebman is a renowned lecturer and author of several milestone books: Self Portrait Of A Jazz Artist, A Chromatic Approach To Jazz Harmony And Melody, Developing A Personal Saxophone Sound, translated into several languages.

He is the Founder and Artistic Director of the International Association of Schools of Jazz. Awards include 2013 Jazz Educators Network Legend of Jazz, 2011 NEA Masters of Jazz (2011); 2009 Order of Arts and Letters (France); 2007 Jazz Journalist’s award for Soprano Saxophone; 1998 Grammy nomination for Best Jazz Solo; 1997 Honorary Doctorate from the Sibelius Academy (Finland). He is currently Artist in Residence at the Manhattan School of Music and has consistently placed in the top three places for Soprano Saxophone in the Downbeat Critic’s Poll since 1973.

Liebman continues the time-tested tradition of master/apprentice, as he experienced it in the 70’s with Elvin Jones and Miles Davis, by reaching across generations

to teach and to learn.
