RealTracks Artist Bio: Neil Swainson

Born in Nanaimo, B.C., bassist Neil Swainson worked for two years in Victoria with Jazz-New Age flautist Paul Horn. Relocating to Toronto, he played with Woody Shaw frequently in the 1980s and also gigged with James Moody, George Coleman, and Zoot Sims. A member of Moe Koffman′s quintet during 1978-1982, Swainson went on to gain his greatest fame when he started working with George Shearing in 1988, an association that continued into the late ′90s.

Neil has written and recorded original music with a co-operative band called JMOG. The album "49th Parallel" was first released in 1989. It is mostly Swainson compositions, with Woody Shaw & Joe Henderson up front.

Now one of Canada′s most respected Jazz greats, Neil′s recording and performing associations also include Ernestine Anderson, Ed Bickert, Pat Coleman, Herb Ellis, Joe Farrell, Oliver Gannon, Slide Hampton, Pat LaBarbera, Rob McConnell, Ian McDougall, Jay McShann, PJ Perry, Zoot Sims, and Sonny Stitt among others.
