Expansions Live
Genre: Jazz
Review: Liebman returns with an ambitious 2-disc CD of two live sets with his excellent quintet - acoustic and electric. Either way, the playing is brilliant, with many original compositions. He also rearranges a few old standards, including one from Elvis Presley, and makes them his own.
FCCs: none
