Steve Kuhn Trio with Steve Swallow & Joey Baron
Steve Kuhn Trio with Steve Swallow & Joey Baron
After making his mark as a sideman with John Coltrane, Stan Getz, Chet Baker, Art Farmer and others, pianist Steve Kuhn moved beyond the powerful influence of Bill Evans to become a unique stylist with incredible technique, sense of dynamics and lyricism. Over the last fifteen years Steve has released critically acclaimed CDs marking a well-deserved career renaissance.

Bass guitar master and composer Steve Swallow joined the Paul Bley Trio in 1960, subsequently playing in groups led by Jimmy Giuffre, George Russell, Art Farmer, Stan Getz and Gary Burton. Since the late 1970s, Swallow has been closely associated with his wife Carla Bley's groups while also touring and recording with other top jazz artists including John Scofield and Lee Konitz.

Rounding out the trio, drummer Joey Baron combines technical acuity with a deep sense of groove. Best known for his work with Bill Frisell, Stan Getz, John Zorn and guitarists John Scofield, John Abercrombie and Jim Hall, Joey has also performed with musicians outside of jazz including the Los Angeles Philharmonic, David Bowie, Tony Bennett, Laurie Anderson and Al Jarreau.

The trio's recent ECM CD, “Wisteria,” takes a fresh look at several pieces heard on Kuhn’s orchestral, “Promises Kept,” alongside the driving hard bop of “A Likely Story," Swallow's “Dark Glasses," Carla Bley’s gospel-tinged “Permanent Wave” and the Brazilian flavored “Romance,” by Dori Caymmi.
