You’ll be tapping your toes when you hear this lively duo with its big, warm sound -- featuring Nelda Swiggett on piano/vocals and Clif Swiggett on trombone/percussion. Their repertoire includes classic standards from the Great American Songbook, lively Brazilian and Afro-Cuban rhythms, and funky hits by Stevie Wonder, Pharrell Williams and more. 
Clif and Nelda both have many years of professional experience performing on Seattle's thriving jazz and Latin scenes. Nelda Swiggett is also an award-winning composer and OA2 recording artist. Her four CDs of original music have received extensive airplay around the globe, including frequent plays on Seattle's popular KNKX 88.5 FM (formerly KPLU). Her band has been featured at the Earshot Jazz Festival, Bumbershoot, Dimitriou’s Jazz Alley, and other top Northwest jazz venues. “Swiggett has a unique touch…intensely appealing pianism…a voice with a depth similar to that of Abbey Lincoln…” (All About Jazz). Clif Swiggett grew up in New York playing jazz trombone as a teenager. He toured with the Glenn Miller Orchestra, played lead trombone in the McDonald’s Tri-State Jazz Ensemble backing up Dizzy Gillespie at the Newport and Kool Jazz Festivals, and performed live on the Merv Griffin Show. Since moving to Seattle, Clif has performed with Room To Move and Megabopolis (jazz), Cambalache and Caribbean Roots (salsa and Afro-Cuban), The Brian Waite Band (reggae, funk, rock), and most of Seattle’s top big bands.
