Jazz | Steve Swell 

The range of the trombone is seemingly limitless in the hands of Steve Swell. From melodic to guttural, he covers all of the territory. Fresh out of college Swell was making waves, touring with the bands of Lionel Hampton, Buddy Rich, and Jaki Byard. By the mid-1980's he had carved out a place for himself in the adventurous New York free jazz scene. When he visits the Bop Shop, Swell's trio will include William Connell on woodwinds and flute and Reggie Nicholson on drums and percussion.

Steve Swell plays Sunday, March 9, 8 p.m. at Bop Shop Records, 1460 Monroe Ave. $5-$10. bopshop.com. 271-3354.
