Guitarist Jeff Swanson has made his unique voice and open mind a valued part of Chicago’s diverse music
scene. A strong player in many disciplines, he has been featured at the Chicago Jazz Festival, Hyde Park Jazz
Festival, Iowa City Jazz Festival, Chicago Gospel Festival.
Case-fitter, is Swanson’s first original full-length release. It was recorded over four weeks in April 2017
during a residency at The Whistler in Chicago. Each week the group used a set repertoire and added
members to its core trio, exploring a different experience each week and concluding with the final recorded
performance as an octet.
Swanson brings a fresh lyrical approach to meshing jazz, improvisation, electronic and post-rock music
together on this release
