“A gorgeous, uncluttered set, exploring the purity and beauty of the familiar.” -Dan McClenaghan, All About Jazz
The singular guitarist John Stowell and saxophone legend Dave Liebman have been friends and colleagues for decades and occasionally find time to perform or record together, such as on Stowell's 2002 release, "The Banff Sessions" (Origin). For "Blue Rose," Stowell and Liebman gathered at a studio in the heart of the Pocono Mountains for an intimate set of duets, performing standards such as Cole Porter's "Everything I Love," along with compositions from modern jazz composers, including Wayne Shorter's "Black Eyes" and Kenny Wheeler's "Everybody's Song But My Own."
