This Jazz Bridge Neighborhood Concert Series is sponsored by Jazz Bridge, a 501C3 nonprofit that assists local jazz and blues musicians in crisis. The Cheltenham Neighborhood Concert series is partially supported by a grant from the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts and the Greater Philadelphia Cultural Alliance.

Born in Wilmington Delaware in 1967, Swanson has made a name for himself as one of the most versatile working bassists in the Philly metro area working with such diverse artists as Siora, Klingon Klez, Don Eaton Band, Cartoon Christmas Trio, and Hoots and Hellmouth. Tripling on electric and upright bass and vocals, Rob finds himself in up to 20 different musical configurations on any given month, including bebop, groove, world, funk and rock. The latest CD release by Swanson is The Terra Soul Project, a compilation of original works inspired by world music and jazz. On stage, Rob will be joined by world-class musicians: Jimmy Coleman—drums (John Legend), Frank Strauss—keys (Tom Jones/Melissa Manchester), and Greg Riley—Sax (Ray Charles/ Keiko Matsui)

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
