Review of Ruminations & Reflections – New York City Jazz Record

The duo’s remarks about their approach to music come across as accessible to both students and non-musicians, with a helpful glossary for any unfamiliar terms.

The New York City Jazz Record has published a positive review of Ruminations & Reflections – The Musical Journey of Dave Liebman and Richie Beirach in the March 2023 issue.

Perhaps the most moving section consists of letters that each man wrote to deceased bandleaders with whom they worked or who inspired them, telling them in the present what they couldn’t have as younger men. Liebman’s letter to Miles Davis and Beirach’s note to his friend Bill Evans especially stand out as heartfelt.
