About Swing n' Dix
I have had the great pleasure to play alongside Jeff Lederer for the past 7 years in the Matt Wilson Quartet. Jeff has a completely original tenor sound that stems from an inspiration often overlooked by todays saxophonists, Albert Ayler! Jeff brought this fun group together and I forget its 3/4's of Matt's Quartet because we do a completely different thing! The 4th person being the legendary Bob Stewart on tuba. Jeff and I both began playing Dixieland or Traditional jazz as young teenagers. I sat in with my Great Uncle's band and Jeff even played with Lawrence Welk! This band has a post modern take on early Jazz.
We Recorded our first CD which is self titled for Litte (i) Music .
