The Career of Steve Swallow | St. Louis Public Radio

The Career of Steve Swallow

Feb 4, 2018

Please join me tonight on Jazz Unlimited from nine p.m. to midnight on St. Louis Public Radio, 90.7 KWMU for “The Career of Steve Swallow.”  Electric bassist Steve Swallow’s 57-year career has included long associations with George Russell, Jimmy Giuffre, Gary Burton, Art Farmer, and John Scofield.  Since 1980, he has been musically and romantically associated with Carla Bley.  In addition, we will hear him with Stan Getz, Stephane Grappelli, Chick Corea, the Liberation Music Orchestra, Joe Lovano, Bobby Pervite & Bump, Thelonious Monk, Conjure, Adam Nussbaum, and on a Kenny Davern recording that is very difficult for traditional jazz fans

The Slide show has my photographs of some of the musicians heard on this show.

Tge Archive of this show will be available until the morning of February 12, 2018.

The video is a performance by Carla Bley (p) and Steve Swallow (el-b) of a piece called "Lawns."  The Time and Date were not specified.
