Whaling City Sound is pleased to present Earth, the latest release from world-renowned saxophonist and composer Dave Liebman. Thematically, Earth is Dave Liebman’s plea for the planet. The album makes strong statements about humankind, the Earth as a living entity, and our coalescence with that entity. On this release, Liebman is accompanied by the young luminaries and jazz veterans who make up his newest ensemble, Expansions, formed in 2013. The group includes Bobby Avey on piano, Matt Vashlishan on reeds, Alex Ritz on drums along with the perennial Tony Marino on bass. Liebman will be celebrating the release of Earth at Dizzy’s Club at Jazz at Lincoln Center on February 28 through March 1.
