Bassist Steuart Liebig, an accomplished player who specializes in the electric six-string
bass, has been circulating on the inspired, avant-jazz fringes of the Los Angeles music
scene for years.

To say only that he plays bass would be misleading. As an improviser, he commands a
shocking array of effects. As a composer, he can create rigorous but liberating
frameworks for wide-open jazz on one hand and harmonica honk on the other (The Mentones). And mainly, he hears everybody else, assimilates it all and kicks it to another

Steuart Liebig is part of the same Southern California scene as Vinny Golia and Nels and
Alex Cline; under the contracted moniker Steubig, he was a member of Julius Hemphill’s
JAH band. Using an electric bass . . . he can coax supportive chords and quiet harmonics
from it, making it function in the implausible role of a chamber instrument.

. . . nonpareil rethinker of electric bass . . .
