2011 NEA JAZZ MASTER DAVE LIEBMAN ON HIS FRIEND AND EDUCATOR, JAMEY AEBERSOLD.
Dave Liebman: This guy is some teacher. And with a sense of humor, unbelievable. He’s very strict, he’s very straight, he wants his folks to do what they gotta do. But he is hilarious and entertaining and keeps the class alive and has everyone singing back and everything. And it’s really a lesson in humanity.
Bb Blues up and hot
