Mary Tebbs, James Woods, John Flanders, Mark Towner Williams, Lisa Marie Wood, Jill Sissel, Rich Daigle, Leraine Horstmanshoff, Eric Sopanen, Vintah Montoya, Mike Sorich, Carlos Arroyo, Denson Angulo, Doug Wood, Gene Swift, and Chuck Daniels. What do these people have in common? Well, besides being among the top musicians in Utah, they are just some of the gifted performers who have "banded" together for a Salt Lake City all-star CD titled Backseat Guru, The Gene Swift Band. This CD was three years in the making, combining artful songwriting with talented local and national musicians who were each encouraged to add their own spin on the project and to their particular contribution. From Lisa Marie's incredible lead vocals on Time Police; to Mark Towner Williams' timeless Hammond B3 organ tracks on If There Was A Way; to James Woods' pop-laden lead vocals on Pieces of You; and Rich Daigle's outstanding acoustic bass on Big Day, Big Night, each musician has put their personal stamp on the CD. The result is a masterpiece, showcasing the varied talents of the performers and taking the songwriter's vision to a new level. This is truly an "all-star" release.
