An Interview with Anton Schwartz

SOURCE: Published: 2011-08-19
Anton Schwartz I had the opportunity this week to speak by phone with tenor saxophonist Anton Schwartz.

Anton recently moved to the Seattle area. I had the chance to ask him about what brought him to the Puget Sound, and how he has networked himself into the local jazz scene so far.

We also talked about the differences between a jazz scene like Seattle versus the scene in New York, his recent project with vocalist Ed Reed, being in a high school band with Larry Goldings and Peter Bernstein, and leaving the world of artificial intelligence.

“(Artificial intelligence) just seemed like the funnest thing to do at the time...but it just wasn't really the life I wanted to lead. When I decided to quit that, I didn't actually know that I was going to do music instead. That just kind of became apparent over the course of time."
