Steve Swallow - Zurich 2001

Damaged in Transit - what a great name for a band!
I've seen Steve Swallow live three times, I think, and all three occasions were very memorable. First was a concert in trio with Lee Konitz and Adam Nussbaum ("Three Guys" on Enja is the official album from that tour), then I saw him play in a great concert by Bobby Previte's "Bump the Renaissance", and finally, there was this trio of his own, again with Nussbaum and a highly energetic Chris Potter. This is the only recorded bit of all three concerts, alas...
