    Featuring Steve Swallow and Carla Bley In the 1960s bassist Steve Swallow, a favorite of many a jazz critic, met composer Carla Bley, considered “in the same league…as legends like Jelly Roll Morton, Duke Ellington, [and] Charles Mingus” (The Guardian). They’ve been working together ever since, as a duo, part of a big band, and everything in between. The Swallow Quartet was born last fall as Swallow wrote new music for Bley, Berklee-trained saxophonist Chris Cheek, and guitarist Steve Cardenas, a fixture on the new york jazz scene.
