Saturday Night At The Liberal Curmudgeon: David Liebman Pays Homage To Trane

John Coltrane lives on in David Liebman's performance of "My Favorite Things," a Rogers and Hammerstein show tune transformed by "Trane" (Coltrane's rendition featured here last year). Liebman became interested in jazz by watching Coltrane perform in New York clubs, and here he shows that he absorbed Trane's intensity and improvisatory spirit. Liebman on soprano sax is joined by an outstanding lineup composed of Joey Calderazzo, piano; Dave Holland, bass; and Jack DeJohnette, drums (shown here last week with the Keith Jarrett Trio).
