When Granny Sleeps: Birth

In an era when "young lions" are sought after and extolled, often before they are ready with formed music, it is extremely gratifying to hear a young group of musicians who are dedicated to finding and developing a group sound. Recording with "When Granny Sleeps" was like having a fine dinner and overnight stay with a warm and hospitable family of a friend. They had their music together and well rehearsed; they knew what they wanted from me (and Ben on keyboards); and they allowed me to do what I do best. The music itself had memories of the period when I was with Miles Davis in the 1970s - a certain kind of funky looseness with the guitar front and center a lot of the time. This band, if they stay together will definitely make some waves. Meanwhile, you will really have fun with this music. David Liebman.
