Los Angeles based trumpeter Brian Swartz is running an Indiegogo campaign during May 2018 to raise funds for his 5th album. The working title for the project is “The Tuesday Sessions." It will feature his band, The Brian Swartz Quartet, and will be Swartz's debut on vocals. This band has been performing every Tuesday at Perch in Downtown Los Angeles since January 2013. Since then, Swartz has built a repertoire that is a mix of standards from the Great American Songbook and Swartz's original songs.

The Brian Swartz Quartet features Brian Swartz on trumpet, flugelhorn and vocals, Steve Cotter on guitar, Chris Colangelo on bass and drummer Kendall Kay. Renown sound engineer Dennis Moody will be recording the band in his Los Angeles studio. Swartz has performed on numerous Grammy Nominated recordings, most recently on pianist John Beasley's Monk'estra Big Band Volumes 1 & 2. Swartz has also performed live all over the world at the Playboy, Monterey, North Sea and Java Jazz festivals.

For the Indiegogo campaign, Brian Swartz is offering some generous premiums including autographed CD's and sheet music, a “thank you" in the album liner notes, Skype trumpet lessons and even co-producer credits for greater contributions.

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.
