Born in 1940, white bassist Steve Swallow's credentials were already colossal thanks to high-caliber tenures with Paul Bley (1960-65), Jimmy Giuffre (1960-62), George Russell (1961-62), Art Farmer (1962-65), Stan Getz (1965-67), Gary Burton (1967-70), before he switched to the electric bass, playing it like a high-toned guitar, almost a contradiction in terms. He debuted with Hotel Hello (may 1974), a collaboration with Gary Burton. His best work was probably done with Carla Bley, starting in 1978. Swallow (november 1991), with Soca Symphony, was perhaps his best display of technique, but his solo work was mostly hampered by inferior material.

The New Standard (Rare Noise, 2014) features the trio of Jamie Saft, drummer Bobby Previte and bassist Steve Swallow.

Nato nel 1940, il bassista bianco Steve Swallow vanta credenziali colossali molto presto grazie a collaborazioni di altissimo livello con Paul Bley (1960-1965), Jimmy Giuffre (1960-1962), George Russell (1961-1962), Art Farmer (1962-1965), Stan Getz (1965-1967), Gary Burton (1967-1970); prima di passare al basso elettrico in senso classico, suonava questo strumento come una chitarra high-toned, quasi una contraddizione in termini.

Ha debuttato con Hotel Hello (maggio 1974), una collaborazione con Gary Burton.

Il suo lavoro migliore stato probabilmente quello con Carla Bley, a partire dal 1978.

Nell'album Swallow (novembre 1991), con Soca Symphony, vi stata forse la sua pi significativa dimostrazione tecnica, ma il lavoro da solista stato in gran parte ostacolato da materiale di fascia inferiore.

The New Standard (Rare Noise, 2014) presenta il trio con Jamie Saft e il batterista Bobby Previte.

The live Playing In Traffic (september 2008) and Singular Curves (june 2012) document a trio with saxophonist Ohad Talmor and drummer Adam Nussbaum.

Swallow also played on Loneliness Road (june 2016) with pianist Jamie Saft, drummer Bobby Previte and rock vocalist Iggy Pop.
