Whirlpool

This trio came together for a house party concert series in Chicago, featuring Caroline Davis on saxophone and vocals, Jeff Swanson on guitar, and Charles Rumback on drums. As a bassless trio, the music has a certain weightless quality to it. All the members of the group compose original pieces for the band, creating the sound for their debut album, “This World and One More”

Caroline Davis is a saxophonist and vocalist currently living in New York. She has shared the stage with jazz greats Matt Wilson, Ellis Marsalis, Bobby Broom, Dennis Carroll, Von Freeman, and Tom Garling. She also finds a creative outlet performing in Chicago-based world music group Fatbook, hip- hop group Deep Fayed, and folk-Americana group Orso.
