Steve Kuhn, Steve Swallow and Joey Baron Release “Wisteria”

Steve Kuhn, Steve Swallow & Joey Baron: WisteriaAfter working together for nearly 50 years, pianist Steve Kuhn and bassist Steve Swallow have teamed up once again for Wisteria, an 11-track collection, rounded out by drummer Joey Baron.

The album’s title is taken from the name of a song by Art Farmer, whom Kuhn and Swallow both worked for in the ’60s.

On Wisteria, Swallow’s rich electric bass playing serves as a perfect compliment to Kuhn’s mellow piano work. Often laid back throughout the album, the trio kicks things up a notch for “A Likely Story” and the closer “Good Lookin’ Rookie”, but always keeps a nice groove and interesting dialogue.
