LIEBOWITZ/LANE/DRURY TRIO The trio of pianist Carol Liebowitz, bassist Adam Lane, and drummer Andrew Drury may outwardly resemble the classic piano trio but it’s in fact a collective sonic endeavor where the members are constantly shifting and exchanging roles. Liebowitz and Lane have worked together for many years and both worked with the late, great Connie Crothers. Lane and Drury have played in several groups since they first met as college students in the mid-80s. This is this trio's second performance and this will be a live recording.


SOUP & SOUND is a program of Continuum Culture & Arts, Inc. a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that promotes the creation of innovative, world class music while supporting the people who create it and the culture that surrounds it. Our scope is local and international.
