Slam Stewart was an excellent swing-oriented bassist whose capability to bow the bass and hum an octave apart made him famous within the jazz globe. He had considered the theory while their studies at Boston Conservatory when he noticed Ray Perry performing together with his violin. In 1936, Stewart was with Peanuts Holland’s group and the next year he began playing frequently with guitarist/vocalist/comedian Slim Gaillard in an organization logically dubbed “Slim and Slam.” “Flat Feet Floogie” became a big success and held the group operating through the first ’40s. After departing Gaillard, Stewart is at great demand. He used Artwork Tatum’s trio, was presented on records using the Benny Goodman Sextet, Crimson Norvo (a popular program with Charlie Parker and Dizzy Gillespie), and Lester Youthful (a vintage rendition of “Occasionally I’m Content”), and led his personal group which for an interval presented the up-and-coming pianist Erroll Garner. Stewart performed several spectacular duets with tenor saxophonist Don Byas in a 1945 City Hall concert and later on caused Billy Taylor, Roy Eldridge, Bucky Pizzarelli, the Newport All-Stars, along with a many additional jazz greats. He actually documented two albums with bassist Main Holley (who also bowed and hummed however in unison). Until the finish, Slam Stewart occupied his personal unique market in jazz.
