17-time Grammy Award winner Pat Metheny plays alongside saxophone virtuoso David Liebman as he leads this remarkable quartet (that includes Jazz architects Cecil McBee and Billy Hart) as they examine the expansive and elusive nature of the primordial element, Water. From impressionistic ballads to tsunamis of sound, David Liebman’s album, The Elements: Water (also available on CD), is probably the most ambitious project of Liebman’s career.


“…the music is simply terrific. Water is Liebman’s first recording with 

  Metheny, and it’s a solid combination… if he just keeps making records as 

  engaging as this one, that’ll be libation enough: a tall glass of water.”

                                                                                                    -Downbeat Magazine


“Here’s a Jazz concept album that actually works quite well… The 

  combination of Liebman and Metheny is particularly strong, ranging from soft, 

  ethnic-sounding passages to roaring avant-garde explosiveness - a potent 

  reminder that there is far more to Jazz in the ‘90s than the more frequently 

  heard, retro examinations of the past.”                             - Don Heckman, Los Angeles Times


“They produce a greater variety of timbres and textures than most quartets due 

  to Liebman doubling on tenor and soprano sax and wood flute and Metheny 

  employing several guitars: acoustic, electric, guitar synth, and Pikasso guitar. 

  Each group member plays impressively. Liebman has a bright, attractive soprano 

  sound and displays considerable rhythmic grace when playing the instrument. 

  On Tenor he’s powerful; his solid full lower register work deserves special 

  attention. And what a nice, big flute sound he produces.”             

                                                                          -Harvey Pekar, JazzTimes Magazine


Teaming up with guitar prodigy Pat Metheny, reedist David Liebman, who plays tenor saxophone, soprano sax, and wood flute, explores through music the various aspects and facets of water, giver of life and refresher of souls. The combination of Liebman and Metheny on this album is stunning.  While the album, Dave Liebman: The Elements: Water, leans towards Jazz’s less traditional sensibilities, it also contains an earthy quality that connects it to the sounds of nature, and in doing so creates an organic yet contemporary album that’s both assessable and inventive.
