Steve Swallow has been one of the premier bassists (acoustic, then electric) and composers in jazz going back to the 1950s with Jimmy Giuffre and Paul Bley, and later with the likes of Gary Burton and John Scofield.
Steve has a profound lyrical sense, a beautiful ear for harmony, and a tricky idea of form. His pieces are circular, so we are never quite certain about start and finish, which gives them an eternal quality. Some are places to live rather than songs. They are about daily life — sweeping up, hotels, or soft skin. They may invoke salsa, swinging jazz or trance-like riffs that subtly modulate.
The Cuddle band, who have delved into the music of Bill Evans, John Coltrane, and Wayne shorter over the years, have chosen Steve Swallow's tantalizing compositions to play on the weekend of September 21 and 22nd at 7 PM, to bathe all of us in Swallow‘s gorgeous and quirky light.
Bring your blankets and pillows, as a Cuddle concert is best received lying down to relax and dream.
