Top Ten Recognition anticipated for Paul Lieberman's new CD "Ibeji"
(Published: July 18, 2011)
Paul Lieberman's new CD "Ibeji" has been receiving spectacular reviews! The opening track was recently selected as the Download of the Day at All About Jazz, where the editor wrote:
"Good god, this song is beautiful. It sent chills up my spine... When the year ends, this album will undoubtedly receive some Top Ten recognition."
Another glowing online review includes the following:
"...filled from beginning to end with joy... Blessed with...a program that ranges from sparkling originals to classic tunes from Brazil to jazz standards to one of the best covers of a Beatles tune by a jazz player, the recording shines... ‘Lovely' is a weak word for this stunning, heartfelt, and emotional work... In truth, "Ibeji" is "soul" music through and through, in the way that John Coltrane's "A Love Supreme", JS Bach's "6 Suites for Cello", and, yes, [Beethoven's] "Song of Joy" is "soul" music to my ears. The music comes from a place that combines technique, intelligence, experience, emotions and risk-taking that pushes the musician beyond the ordinary or the commonplace. How one reacts to this joyful creation is a matter of personal taste but, for this listener, I am going to return to this recording over and over because I like just how fine this music makes me feel."
