“Jazz Group of the Year” nominee, The Lao Tizer Band, brings their electrifying World Jazz Fusion and introduce Dayton to their brand-new, Billboard Jazz top 10 CD/DVD combo-pack release, Songs From The Swinghouse! Led by pianist, keyboardist, composer and former “Best New Jazz Artist” nominee, Lao Tizer, the group also features vocalist Tita Hutchison (Rick Rubin, Foreigner), Grammy nominated and 3-time Emmy winning guitarist, Chieli Minucci, drum phenom Gene Coye (Larry Carlton, Terence Blancherd) and Senegaleese bassist, Cheikh N’Doye (Baaba Maal, Mike Stern). Tizer praises each musician for his and her contribution to the whole. Conceptually focused while always generous as a composer, arranger and band-leader, Tizer produced Songs From The Swinghouse on his own and wrote all of the instrumental tracks himself, aside from one co-write, "A Prayer For Unity" with the band's other guitarist, Jeff Marshall. They wrote it just after the terrorist attacks in Paris in 2015, and the significance at this particular time amid current events is imperative for Tizer. "It's a message that the world needs on a much more macro level, and music is one of those few mediums that can bridge some gaps," says Tizer.
