Dave Liebman & Michael Stephans


"About twenty years ago, award winning saxophonist David Liebman began making a list of rock and pop songs that he loved and wanted to revisit someday, in order to recreate them in a contemporary series of settings that would be consistent with his approach to improvisational music. The idea of deconstructing / reconstructing pop songs didn't resurface until 2009 When Lieb and I began talking about our mutual love of the music that we grew up listening to in the late 50's and 1960's: Early Elvis, groups like the Platters, The Surfaris, and The Champs, romantic pop crooners like Johnny Mathis, and popular singers like Joni Mitchell, Stevie Wonder, Joe Cocker, Simon & Garfunkel and of course, The Beatles." -Michael Stephans


"This recording is a look back, but cast in the sound of today. You will be surprised at the direction some these classic tunes take." - David Liebman
