Expansions: The Dave Liebman Group

Join us for the Berks Jazz Fest kick-off concert! Expansions: The Dave Liebman Group will feature music written and played by John Coltrane celebrating the 90th year of his birth and 50th year since his passing. The music will cover the three periods of his extraordinary and short career (twelve years) beginning with his tenure as a sideman in the Miles Davis Group; through the repertoire of the Classic Quartet (Tyner, Jones, and Garrison); concluding with pieces from the late “free” jazz period. Coltrane’s body of work represents a pinnacle of achievement in the 20th century exerting an influence that goes beyond jazz both spiritually and musically. Specifically, for Liebman, it was seeing Coltrane live on many occasions in New York City that inspired him to pursue this music.
