Dave Liebman “Expansions” & BLU Jazz+ Late Night Jazz Jam

October 23, 2015

Dave Liebman, a National Endowment of the Arts Jazz Master saxophonist whose career has spanned nearly five decades (including stints with Elvin Jones & Miles Davis groups) brought his exciting new band, “Expansions,” to BLU in late October for an evening of exceptional live music performed at a very high level, featuring Bobby Avey, Matt Vashlishan, Alex Ritz, Tony Marino.
The evening was capped off with a Late Night Jazz Jam hosted by saxophonist, Bobby Selvaggio. We had many fine musicians sit in for the jam, including Dave Liebman! A fun & memorable evening for all.
