Expansions: The Dave Liebman Group :: Saturday, March 25
Doors at 7:30, Show 8:30pm Call 860-434-2600 for reservations
Expansions: The Dave Liebman Group will feature for all their performances in 2017, music written and played by John Coltrane celebrating the 90th year of his birth and 50th since his passing. The material will cover the three periods of his extraordinary and short career (twelve years) beginning with his tenure as a sideman in the Miles Davis Group; through the repertoire of the Classic Quartet (Tyner, Jones and Garrison); concluding with pieces from the late “free” jazz period. Coltrane's body of work represents a pinnacle of achievement in the 20th century exerting an influence that goes beyond jazz both spiritually and musically. Specifically for Liebman, it was seeing Coltrane live on many occasions in New York City that inspired him to pursue this music.
