Upon graduation, Evan joined Chico Hamiltonâ€™s orchestra and has been playing with Chico ever since.

Evan can be heard on Chico Hamiltonâ€™s cd releases â€œForeststornâ€ & â€œThoughts of...â€ 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.
â€œSaxman Evan Schwam glides his tenor over Hamilton's sizzling cybal work on â€œThoughts Of Prez,â€ and shows a gentle affecting tone on the spacious "Thoughts Of Trane.â€
Robin Tolleson, Downbeat
â€œEvan is a smart and sensitive player and has a lyricism you don't often find these days.â€
