Profile
David Liebman (born September 4, 1946 in Brooklyn, New York) is an American saxophonist and flautist. Inspired by seeing Charlie Parker play, he took up the saxophone by the age of 12, and after graduating with a degree in American History, devoted himself full time to music. After working with the early jazz-rock band Ten Wheel Drive, he was tapped for sideman positions by Elvin Jones (appearing on albums starting with Genesis in 1971), then Miles Davis (starting with On the Corner). He has recorded more than a hundred albums as leader or co-leader as well as playing with many other artists around the world.
