Jeff Swanson’s Case-fitter

"Two-Nineteen"

Jeff Swanson’s Case-fitter

A Case-fitter is a craftsman who assembles the different parts of the watch case to house the movement in its exact dimensions. Guitarist Jeff Swanson’s newest project looks at this concept from a musician’s standpoint and allows a wide range of influences to make it’s way into the repertoire. Accompanied by some of Chicago’s finest open-minded musicians, the group explores improvisations and sound collages while piecing together Swanson’s compositions in real-time.

“Two-Nineteen” was recorded live at The Whistler on April 25th, 2017 during Case-fitter’s month-long Tuesday night residency. As the month progressed, the band expanded…
