Initially released on Concord Records on CD in 1988, Swainson’s only album, 49th Parallel is extremely rare and sought after making its vinyl debut with a limited edition pressing. The recording features a quintet with jazz legends Joe Henderson on tenor saxophone, trumpeter Woody Shaw, drummer Jerry Fuller and Gary Williamson on piano. The album was Shaw’s last studio session. The deluxe package features new liner notes by Phil Dwyer, an interview with Swainson by producer Cory Weeds and rare photographs by Mark Miller and Alice Su. The LP is pressed on 180-gram vinyl in a gatefold sleeve.
