Saxophonist and flautist Dave Liebman hit the ground running in the late 1960's with the fusion group Ten Wheel Drive. But it wasn't long before his John Coltrane-oriented tenor sound led to gigs with Miles Davis, Elvin Jones, McCoy Tyner, and Chick Corea. Liebman has made hundreds of records as a sideman and dozens more as a leader, but he has only recorded two solo albums. At the Bop Shop he'll be playing a rare solo concert on tenor and soprano sax.
Dave Liebman plays Thursday, November 19, at Bop Shop Records, 1460 Monroe Avenue. 8:30 p.m. $15-$20. 271-3354; bopshop.com.
