Hello to you all and welcome to my web site. Besides the usual publicity material, itineraries and available products which one normally encounters on artist web sites, over the years I have tried to make this site into a repository of information about jazz for those who are seriously interested in the art form. Specifically, past newsletters, educational articles, private archive recordings, photos and interviews should be of particular interest. As a result of over forty years of being a jazz artist, there is a lot of information here.

Feel free to contact me (CONTACT TAB ABOVE) for any specific musical questions. Enjoy!!
"Liebman is among the most important saxophonists in contemporary music . . . a leader and artist of integrity and independent direction." Downbeat Magazine

When besides that I'm being rewarded with all this approval, attention, approbation for something that is solely mine and only I can do. There can't be anything better than that. To be intensely alone, intensely myself, in control of everything, the center of a self created universe."
