The Liberté Big Band is a 17-piece big band based in NYC, and formed in 2013. Led by Liberté-Anne Lymberiou, this modern, multi-generational ensemble plays compositions by Lymberiou and her contemporaries.
As it’s name would indicate, the band’s broad mission is to constantly perform new works while maintaining the all-encompassing creativity and communality of the jazz tradition. You’ll hear pieces ranging from afro-latin to free-jazz, bebop to funk, and lots more that even the bandleader has yet to anticipate.
Greatly influenced by Charles Mingus, Lymberiou captures the spontaneity and unpredictability of jazz through extended compositions. The moods of the music swing as much as the rhythms do, and inevitably move her audiences, both inside and out.
Lymberiou is a recent graduate of the Jazz Performance Program at the City College of New York. A native of Montreal, she began her jazz studies there at Vanier College and settled in NYC in 2012.
