JAZZ FEST INDEX - 2005 Rochester INTERNATIONAL JAZZ FESTIVAL

Steve Swell

We showed up at Milestones for the second set of Steve Swell. We were kinda beat and the band was kinda all out. Steve Swell is a "traditional avant garde" player according to the program. His trombone, multi-reedman bass and drum quartet was pretty hardcore. Swells acted like he had hurt his lip in the first set and seemed upset, but maybe that was part of the package. - photo by P Doddy - click photo to advance > next
