Native New Yorker Evan Schwam attended the Mannes College of Music’s New School Jazz Program, where he studied with jazz legends Chico Hamilton, Makanda Ken McIntyre, Junior Mance, Arnie Lawrence, and Cecil McBee. Upon graduation, Evan joined Chico Hamilton’s orchestra and has been playing with Chico ever since.

Performances with Hamilton have included:
2001 Free Jazz Festival Rio De Janeiro & Sao Paulo, Brazil
2003 New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival
2004 Ford Detroit Jazz Festival
2005 Playboy Jazz Festival Hollywood Bowl Los Angeles, CA
2005 Lincoln Center Out-Of-Doors Festival New York, NY
2007 JVC Newport Jazz Festival
Evan can be heard on Chico Hamilton’s cd releases “Foreststorn” & “Thoughts of...” on Koch Jazz (2001, 2002) which feature Evan on the tenor saxophone and the flute.

In 2006, Joyous Shout! released: "Juniflip" (featuring Evan's composition "Mr. Hamilton"), "Believe" (featuring Evan's composition "Evan's-ville"), "6th Avenue Romp" (featuring 3 of Evan's arrangements), and Heritage. All 4 cd's were released to commemorate Chico Hamilton's 85th birthday year. They all feature Evan on the tenor and soprano saxophones, and the flute.

“Saxman Evan Schwam glides his tenor over Hamilton's sizzling cybal work on “Thoughts Of Prez,” and shows a gentle affecting tone on the spacious "Thoughts Of Trane.”
Robin Tolleson, Downbeat

“Evan is a smart and sensitive player and has a lyricism you don't often find these days.”
NEA Jazz Master Chico Hamilton
