Music You Don't Know You Like Yet

STEVE SWALLOW with ROBERT CREELY

So There

2007-05-28

The album began as a collaboration and became a tribute to Creely after his passing in 2005. Swallow has been inspired by Creely’s poetry since the 50s and they have collaborated live numberouse times, and on a 1979 record. Swallow is an equally talented and esoteric jazz bassist who uses the upper register like no one else in jazz, playing it like a regular guitar. Prolific and talented pianist Steve Kuhn, Coltrane’s Quintet’s original keyboardist, rounds out the album. -Pete
