"From the opening notes of "All the Things You Are," you can hear that this is a different standards album. Back on tenor after years of showing himself to be perhaps THE soprano saxophonist, David Liebman proves what a valuable tenor voice we lost when he dropped the instrument in the '80s. His approach to the big horn is something of a Rollins/Rivers/Ben Webster thing, though he definitely has a sound of his own. He approaches these standards like the true theoretical master he is, putting abstract spins on familiar standards like "Summertime," "Lover Man," and a stunning version of "All the Things You Are." A brilliant album."
