Steve Swallow and Friends at Iridium!

April 25, 2011

As a child, Steve Swallow studied piano and trumpet before turning to the double bass at age 14. While attending a prep school, he began trying his hand in jazz improvisation. In 1960 he left Yale, where he was studying composition, and settled in New York City, playing at the time in Jimmy Giuffre’s trio along with Paul Bley. Since joining Art Farmer’s quartet in 1964, Swallow began to write. It is in the 1960s that his long-term association with Gary Burton’s various bands began.
Today, as an electric bassist of elasticity and modernity, Steve Swallow has worked well in recent years with the saxophonist Ohad Talmor, his frontman in this trio. Holding down percussive duties is the drummer Adam Nussbaum, a regular partner to them both.
Come and see them at Iridium this week April 27th & 28th. You won’t regret it!
