On all these occasions, the music is arranged from Liebman's own compositions and improvisations. He has consistently placed among the top finalists in the Down Beat Critic's and Reader's Polls since in the Soprano Saxophone category and on occasion, flute. Lieb has been featured on several hundred recordings of which he has been the leader or co-leader on over one hundred.
Nearly three hundred original compositions have been recorded. His artistic output has ranged from straight-ahead classic jazz to chamber music, from fusion to avant garde, with numerous CDs featuring original arrangements of the music of Thelonious Monk, Miles Davis, Coltrane, Kurt Weill, Alec Wilder, Cole Porter, Jobim, Puccini and the Beatles. Liebman has published material on a variety of subjects including instructional DVDs.
He has also published chamber music and over the years has contributed regularly to various periodicals, such as the Saxophone Journal and the International Association of Jazz Educators Journal. His teaching activities at universities and in clinic settings have taken him literally around the world as a result of his varied musical directions and expertise on several instruments, The Sky - Celea Liebman Reisinger - World View (CD with an ability to articulate the intricacies of the jazz language, aesthetic and technique.
As far as I'm aware, there are three officially released live recordings by Sky: the live concert video Live In Concert: Bremen, Germany actually filmed and recorded in and released on DVD in ; Five Live a double vinyl album originally released in but subsequently re-released in CD ; and the present one, Live In Nottingham recorded and filmed inbut made available on CD--and also on DVD under the Classic Rock Legends banner--in Out of these three live releases, my first choice is without a doubt the Live In Concert: Bremen, Germany video, which Album) a less than perfect sound and picture quality captures the band at their best and in my opinion this recording outshines the band's studio albums.
My least favourite of the three is the incoherent Five Live album, which admittedly has several highlights, but overall lacks direction. This brings us to The Sky - Celea Liebman Reisinger - World View (CD present recording which falls in between those two in terms of quality.
I think it is fair to say that these three live releases focus on different aspects of the band: while the Bremen recording focuses on the band's progressive side, and Five Live more on the band's jazzy side, Live In Nottingham focuses on the band's Easy-Listening side.
The latter showcases an altogether more laid back band. The three live recordings together give a nice overview. One thing that makes Live In Nottingham stand out is the presence of violin, mandolin, and ukelele. The first of these is obviously intended as a follow-up to the second. Together with Cannonball from the self-titled debut from the two Hotta-numbers are the most rocking tracks here, but they are somewhat less rocking than other versions of these tunes.
These are certainly good and enjoyable versions, but I can't help note that the band feels and sounds somewhat tired here compared to the aforementioned Live In Concert: Bremen film.
Jehad is a Middle-Eastern-sounding number that is not present on any studio recording. It is dark and atmospheric yet never degenerates into ambient territory. I like it. Reverie similarly never appeared on a studio album. It is a beautiful, mellow, Classical piece driven by grand piano and acoustic guitar. It is very solemn to the point The Sky - Celea Liebman Reisinger - World View (CD almost sending you to sleep--in a good way!
It is at this point that we get a couple of lesser numbers. Meheeco is jazzier here than the studio version on 's Sky 3 and starts with a rather long improvisational part that I don't value highly. Still, that one is much less of a problem than the downright awful Would You say I'm In Love With You which features cheesy keyboard sounds and an unbearable tropical-island-beat.
This is something you would expect in a touristy bar in some tropical holiday resort, not on a Rock album. Overall, a rather nice live Album). I have not seen the video version of it. Most band's I know of that called their albums by their order of appearance 1, 2, Album), etc. This was, however, not entirely without justification as this live release did contain lots of new material that appears only on this album and nowhere else but also a few Sky classics.
