Drummer Bill Stewart, best-known for his association with John Scofield, had a very impressive recording debut as a leader with Snide Remarks in 1995, a date featuring Scofield and Joe Lovano.
Stewart first started on drums when he was seven and from an early age he listened steadily to jazz. At William Patterson College during 1986-1988, Stewart studied with Dave Samuels, Harold Mabern, Rufus Reid, and Joe Lovano. He made his first recording with tenor man Scott Kreitzer, cut a pair of best-selling albums with Maceo Parker, freelanced a bit, and then spent five years with Scofield's band. Telepathy appeared in 1997. ~ Scott Yanow, Rovi
