Born in Brooklyn, New York, on September 4, 1946, David Liebman began taking piano lessons when he was nine years old and started on saxophone when he was twelve.
He became interested in jazz while attending John Coltrane's live performances in New York clubs.
Liebman was a member of the early jazz-fusion group Ten Wheel Drive for a year in the early '70s and would become an important figure on the New York loft scene of the period.
Dave Liebman would record and tour the world extensively throughout the 1970s with bookings in Canada, India, Japan, Europe, and the U.S.
For his 1973 debut LP "Lookout Farm" he was awarded the number one slot for "Group Deserving of Wider Recognition".
After leading the Dave Liebman Group for twenty-three years formed a new band Expansions" with bassist Tony Marino, pianist Bobby Avey, reedman Matt Vashlishan, and drummer Alex Ritz.
His musical variety and multi-instrumental abilities have caused him to be an educator in high demand teaching at universities and clinics around the world.
Liebman has since co-authored his well received biography "What It Is: The Life of a Jazz Artist" with musicologist Lewis Porter, published in 2012.
