About the album

Though a legendary figure from his monumental contributions to the clarinet and soprano saxophone's role in jazz, it was the compositions of Sidney Bechet that inspired master saxophonist David Liebman and guitarist John Stowell to dig deep into his catalog to compile and explore this set of rarely heard gems. Each possessing singular voices themselves that have inspired generations of other performers, Liebman & Stowell have created a very personal and intimate duo project celebrating another giant's work, their conversations making for compelling listening. "Guitarist Stowell and saxophonist Liebman find simple ways to express their expansive lexicon, and raise the intensity without shattering the resultant peaceful ambiance." - EMUSIC.
Die Musik von Sidney Bechet: Liebman & Stowell haben ein sehr persönliches und intimes Duo-Projekt ins Leben gerufen, das das Werk eines anderen Giganten feiert, dessen Dialoge ein fesselndes Zuhören ermöglichen. "Gitarrist Stowell und Saxophonist Liebman finden einfache Wege, ihr umfangreiches Können auszudrücken und die Intensität zu erhöhen, ohne die daraus resultierende friedliche Atmosphäre zu zerstören. - EMUSIC.

David Liebman's career has spanned over four decades, beginning in the early '70s with his "apprenticeship" period performing and recording in the groups of drummer Elvin Jones ("Live At The Lighthouse") and Miles Davis ("On The Corner"). Since then he has lead his own groups (Lookout Farm; Quest;The Dave Liebman Group) featuring musicians such as John Scofield, Richie Beirach, Billy Hart, Adam Nussbaum, Al Foster, John Abercrombie and Vic Juris. Lieb has consistently placed among the top three in the Downbeat Critics Poll for Soprano Saxophone since 1973; winning first place in both the Downbeat and Jazz Times Critic's Poll in 2011. As well in 2011, Liebman received the NEA Masters of Jazz Award, the highest honor for jazz given by the United States government.
