Dave Liebman & the Dudley House Jazz band

I'm very excited to announce that Dudley House, where I had a lot of fun serving as a jazz band leader, is holding its first artist residency with saxophonist Dave Liebman.

Residency starts tonight!

At the warm Cafe Gato Rojo, the Dudley House Jazz Combo performs a free pre-residency kickoff concert: Liebman and More. The Cafe Gato Rojo is a lovely place - I spent quite some time there, meeting friends, studying, reading, composing, and even playing music: nothing like a jam session at the Gato!

David Liebman Master Class

On Wednesday, Dave Liebman is giving a master-class at the Harvard music department. It will be a great event. Dave Liebman is an amazing artist & composer who enjoys talking about theory. I discovered him through his book: A chromatic approach to jazz harmony and melody.

World première: the Liebman Concerto

If you're in the Boston area, don't miss the concert on Thursday, April 19th, in Harvard Paine Hall at 8 p.m.

The Liebman Concerto, a new work by composer and pianist Lewis Porter, will be premièred by David Liebman, Lewis Porter, the Dudley House Jazz band and the Dudley House orchestra.

I wish I were able to attend the concert, but I'll be there in spirit!
