Grammy-nominated jazz saxophonist Dave Liebman comes to Hope College on Wednesday, Oct. 23, at 8 p.m. at the Knickerbocker Theatre.
The public is invited. Admission is free.
Liebman has established himself as a preeminent jazz musician and educator. After working with the pioneering jazz fusion group Ten Wheel Drive, Liebman joined up with drummer Elvin Jones.
Miles Davis then hired Liebman, and the two shared the stage and recordings for over four years. After forming his own band, Liebman later did a world tour with Chick Corea. He has been a leader of several bands since the early 1980s.
Liebman was nominated for a Grammy award in 1998 for Best Jazz Solo for his recording of "My Favorite Things."
He has also published several books, instructional videos and chamber music, and contributed to a number of periodicals. He has recorded more than 75 CDs, either as leader or co-leader, and has been a featured sideman on more than 150 recordings. His output ranges from straight ahead to chamber jazz, and from fusion to avant garde.
While at Hope, Liebman will also be leading a clinic at the Knickerbocker Theatre at 2 p.m.
The Knickerbocker Theatre is located at 86 East 8th St. in downtown Holland.
