Trombonist and composer Steve Swell has been an active member of the NYC jazz scene since 1975. This fall he will be in tour in the midwest with his ongoing quintet project, one of the most progressive groups in avant-garde jazz today, combining the multi-generational talents of some of jazz musics most in-demand names to create a sound that combines song with abstraction. Steve Swell has toured and recorded with jazz giant Buddy Rich and in 2008 and 2011 he was nominated for Trombonist of the Year by the Jazz Journalists Association. This event is presented in partnership with KDHX.
