"Steve Swell is an active member of the NYC Music Community since '75 and has toured or recorded with cutting edge musicians like Anthony Braxton, Cecil Taylor and mainstreamers like Buddy Rich and Lionel Hampton as well.
No doubt about the fact that he's one of the most important active trombonist on the scene.
"Eastuaries" is a wonderful example of how great improvisers can shape the music and reveals that the only way to reach freedom is a total control of the music.
It features the argentinian composer and improviser Andrew Raffo Dewar on soprano saxophone and the great Garrison Fewell on guitar."-dEN records
