The Liebman, Copland, Alessi Quintet Featuring Drew Gress and Joey Baron
For the first time anywhere, Birdland presents all five onstage together! David Liebman, Marc Copland, Ralph Alessi, Drew Gress, and Joey Baron are well known contemporary jazz masters--each a player, composer, and bandleader in his own right. Grounded in the jazz tradition, they are also committed to stretching the boundaries of the possible. These musicians have years of experience touring and recording together-- Baron and Copland in Gary Peacock's trio; Gress and Baron in Copland's trio; NEA Master David Liebman and Copland in duo, quartets, and quintets; Drew Gress in Ralph Alessi's ECM groups; and Alessi in Copland's quartet. All the members contribute tunes to the band's repertoire.
