DAVID LIEBMAN TRIO: Lieb Plays The Blues à la Trane
Daybreak, 2010

POSTBOP – On tour in Belgium, saxophonist Dave Liebman decided one night to drop his planned repertoire and just play blues-based tunes associated with John Coltrane. No planning, no arrangements, no rehearsals; just play. Thank heavens someone recorded it! This is a true blowing session in the old-fashioned sense, recorded live, and the trio just tears it up. It’s vigorous and burning, straight up and REAL.

All good, try any track.

1. 9:20 – Miles classic at brisk tempo: soprano sax wails over rolling groove. Chills out in the last few minutes.

2. 8:11 – twisty tenor sax in a midtempo walking-bass groove with prodding drums; mic pics up lots of groans and grunts from the bandstand.

3. 11:08 – drops right into bass solo, then drums kick it into gear. It’s well in the groove by the halfway mark, with some really knotty tenor sax

4. 15:33 – lazy blues stroll: soprano sax bobs and weaves in a sleazy groove, slowly adding heat… cools for bass solo, drums give it a late surge

5. 8:58 – quick-paced swing: early bass solo, tenor sax surfs the drum wave
