An Interview with Dave Liebman

Saxophonist to perform in Waukee, Iowa Saturday night.


Saxophonist Dave Liebman, who cut his teeth in the bands of Miles Davis and Elvin Jones, will perform with guitarist Vic Juris Saturday, June 4th at 7:30pm in Waukee, Iowa. Liebman has never played in Central Iowa in his 40-plus years as a jazz musician nor has he ever performed in a duo setting with Juris, his long-time associate. Having recently been awarded the National Endowment of the Arts Jazz Master title, Liebman's career as a performance artist and educator has reached a zenith.

Last Call host?Chris Cooke spoke with Dave Liebman over the phone recently. In a wide ranging discussion of his current work, his past accomplishments and reverence for the masters he studied with, Liebman clearly demonstrated his deep knowledge of jazz & life long commitment to the art form.

Dave Liebman's performance is part of the Jazz@Caspe Terrace Spring Series, presenting internationally renowned jazz artists in the intimate setting of The Caspe Terrace in Waukee, Iowa. For more information you may visit For more information you may visit
