THE STEVE SWELL TRIO Steve Swell-trombone, Tom Abbs-bass and tuba, Geoff Mann-drums
TWO SETS Thursday - This show will be crowded, so get there early to get a seat!!!

STEVE SWELL
"Swell - one of the truly underrated modern masters of his instrument."
-Scott Hreha, One Final Note, Summer/Fall 2001-
"Steve Swell extends the lineage of adventurous trombonists Roswell Rudd, Gracham Moncur III and George Lewis with his daring sense of playing and composition”
-John Murph, JazzTimes, May '98-
Born in Newark, New Jersey, Steve Swell has been living, working and performing in New York City for most of his adult life. In an effort to
find his own voice on his instrument and to learn to write and arrange in a style of his own, he has sought out, performed and recorded with
many of the finest composers and improvisers in the city. He has recorded and toured with such diverse jazz personalities as mainstreamers
Lionel Hampton and Buddy Rich, to so-called outsiders like Anthony Braxton and Jemeel Moondoc. Swell has 10 recordings as a leader or
co-leader and is a featured artist on more than sixty other releases.

Swell first came to public attention performing with Makanda Ken McIntyre in the multi-instrumentalist's concert at Carnegie Recital
Hall in 1985 of which Herb Boyd of The Amsterdam News wrote, "Swell possesses a forceful, but mature sound...with a vibrant syncopation...
" Later, Swell came to international attention while touring in Europe and recording with alto saxophonist Tim Berne and his group "Caos Totale."
There are two studio recordings of this band on the JMT label. During this time Steve also toured and recorded with Joey Baron's "Barondown"
which has three releases; one for JMT, one on New World and the most recent for the Avant label.

Even though he is strongly identified with the "downtown scene", Swell has been developing his style in the more so-called "traditional
avant-garde" arena. Co-leading such projects as "Space, Time, Swing" with Perry Robinson, being a sideman in William Parker's "Little Huey
Creative Music Orchestra" and working with other similar people has kept him on this circuit. Dave McElfresh of Jazz Now wrote in a review
of drummer Lou Grassi's CD, PoGressions, " Swell's powerful trombone zooms in and out of the music like a plane diving at a target. Players
like himself - and music like this - are to be thanked for the revival of interest in the instrument."

Swell's newest CD, "Unified Theory Of Sound, This Now" will be released in January of 2003 on the Cadence label. CIMP will release
a co-lead date with Ursel Schlicht around this time as well. Drimala Records will be releasing a duo recording with Dominic Duval and one
with Perry Robinson later in 2003. Swell was also a featured soloist with Anthony Braxton in his opera, "Shala Fears For The Poor" performed
at John Jay College in New York and recently taught a master class at New England Conservatory in Boston.

Swell was last in Chicago in the summer of 2002, playing two nights of sold-out shows at the Velvet Lounge with Chad Taylor's
Active Ingredients, also featuring Tom Abbs and Jemeel Moondoc.

RAY REED, whose career includes early days as lead alto saxophonist with Stan Kenton and more than 20 years as a member of
Supersax, has undergone extensive treatment over the past several months for "Wegener Granulomatosis", a rare blood disease.    As an ongoing health threat, this condition will require continued medical management.  Friend and fellow saxophonist, Jack Nimitz, has assembled the big band community to raise needed funds for medical treatment while also providing top entertainment for the Jazz loving community.  The line-up for the March 16 event consists of five very popular bands.  Reed, a longtime familiar face on the Los Angeles jazz scene, has worked with some of these bands and with various other locally led groups, including the
Pat Longo Big Band, with whom he has made several recordings.  Other recordings to his credit are numerous, notably Louis Bellson's "Big Band Explosion." Don't miss this fabulous event for a good cause!
