Album Notes
In recent years live jazz in the USA has moved inexorably, even in major cities, from being a showpiece of nightclubs to a wallpaper for restaurants. Groups are smaller than ever.

Chamber Jazz was formed in 1992 by trombonist /pianist Phil Swanson and guitarist Anthony Weller. Soon they added reed player Mike Rossi, and for fifteen years worked widely throughout New England-gigs, concerts, private parties, broadcasts, workshops.

Over the decade when this disc was recorded (1997-2006), Chamber Jazz often included friends like Hebb or Landoni on bass, and Sawyer on drums. Yet the group’s core remained Swanson, Weller, & Rossi. They put foremost the careful art of listening to each other, and applying the ideals of chamber music to jazz improvisation.

Along with flexible instrumentation, what distinguished Chamber Jazz is that its leaders are classical musicians, equally at home in the recital hall. This inspired the group’s special approach to texture, counterpoint, and harmonic interplay.

In the last decade their lives changed. Mike and Phil became professors (Mike at the University of Cape Town, South Africa; Phil at Salem State University in Massachusetts). Both are active composers and performers, with numerous CDs. Anthony became afflicted with multiple sclerosis and had to give up the guitar. Though the three are rarely on the same continent, the listening and the harmony continue.
