Strange Beauty is Libman’s second album as a leader and his first on the esteemed Cellar Live label. Reviewing Strange Beauty, George Fendel of Jazz Scene magazine says “Jeff Libman heads a straight-ahead quartet with precision, poise, and a tonal quality to be admired.” In the weeks following its release on October 28, the album is receiving extensive airplay on over two dozen jazz radio stations and is one of the most added albums on the JazzWeek chart. Strange Beauty also features pianist Michael Kocour, bassist Ben Hedquist, and drummer Dom Moio.
