Beyond: The Jazz Collection from the band, SWOO - Featuring Leland

Meet SWOO, Leland's new jazz fusion group, on the Jazz Project entitled, "Beyond."   SWOO features Tony Francis on Tenor and Alto Saxes, Fairley Light on Trumpet and Fluglehorn, Tim "Jungle Brother" Mhatman on percussion, Carl "Footloose" Hodges on Drums, Zenuh Dogma on Bass, Preuman Nogles on flute and Leland on guitar, keys and programming.

This project delves into a variety of fusion elements, ranging from island to funk to third world and poly rhythmic approaches mixing old school with contemporary styles.  As the group's  "Beyond" collection suggests, this music is set to SWOO you.

I hope you find the Beyond collection a fun and inspirational addition to your music collection. Music should be a motivational and enjoyable journey into the "Beyond"... Leland
