We will be doing a live recording of The the LifeJazz Show during our Program May 6.
Live recording is always tricky but we are going to go for it during our LifeJazz Show on Sunday May 6. We have some great new tunes, some great players including the exciting Reggie Berg on piano, and some great sound engineers, so with a little luck we will get some recordings to share. All we need is you, the live audience to make it really special. Come join us, enjoy some engaging music and story and boost your spirits.
Sunday May 6, 2:30 PM
The Venue at Library 21C
1175 Chapel Hills Dr
Advance $11, Door $15.
LifeJazz Is sponsored by The Art of Jazz, a non-profit arts advocacy.
“Coltrane, Brubeck, Legrand and who else’s songs did you say you will be performing Sunday?,” was the question.
I happened to meet a woman in a doctor’s office who had attended our February LifeJazz Show. “We are coming to your next show and bringing some friends,” she said, “will you be playing the same music?” “No, I replied,” we have a new music.” I was thrilled she was returning and we talked about the program.
We will be playing pieces by Dave Brubeck, John Coltrane, Michel Legrand and a bunch of new pieces by me, Joseph Liberti.
I feel a little crazy when I think about adding my name to that list of composers. I would never pretend to own their competence. But, I am very grateful and very willing to share the music that is in my soul through my newest compositions.
The FluteDaddy Quartet with Reggie Berg piano, Jason Crowe Bass, Tyler Kennamer drums and yours truly playing flutes will premiere some new pieces inspired by art, nature and life. There’s an interesting variety of swing, jazz waltz, swing-hop, bossa nova and even a latin piece in 5/4 with a tip of the hat to Dave Brubeck. One piece will be dedicated to the artist whose work inspired it and she will be present.
