Grammy nominated Jazz Saxophone virtuoso David Liebman (a former member of Miles Davis’ group), with special friends Phil Woods, Vic Jiros, Lenora Zenzalai Helm, and others, take some of the greatest arias of Italian opera composer Giacomo Puccini (1858-1924) and reinterpret them in the Jazz idiom on this unique album. Entitled David Liebman Plays Puccini: A Walk in the Clouds (also available on CD), the album features arias from Madam Butterfly, La Boheme, Turandot and Tosca, amongst others.

 

“…passionate and rhythmically interesting Jazz belonging to one of 

  America’s most adventurous musicians. Interesting rhythms are as 

  synonymous with Liebman's recordings as his name is with soprano 

  flute… Liebman is a great player and conceptualist whose work 

  always deserves hearing… any listener can be thankful for time spent 

  this close to someone who’s lived his love of music so faithfully.”  

                                                                                                  - Jazz Steps Magazine

 

The combination of opera arias being performed in the fluid language of Jazz is a novel and ambitious musical achievement. Saxophone legend Dave Liebman creates a textured album that satisfies the Jazz fan while reaching out to Opera lovers, who will find this album to be a refreshing and innovative reinvention of their Italian classics. This impressive fusion of Puccini compositions and Leibman’s uninhibited Jazz artistry blend.
