As one of the leading forces in contemporary jazz, Liebman gained prominence performing in the groups of Miles Davis and Elvin Jones, and he has since exerted great influence as a saxophonist, bandleader, composer, author, and educator.

Lewis Porter, a jazz pianist, composer, and author, is a professor of music at Rutgers University and the founder and director of the university’s master’s program in jazz history and research.

Liebman and Porter have collaborated on a number of projects, making this residency even more highly anticipated.

The Dudley House Jazz Band and Dudley Symphony Orchestra are ensembles of graduate students from Harvard’s Graduate School of Arts and Sciences, as well as Harvard undergraduates and community members.
