Primal Swing is one of the best jazz/fusion combos to come from Oklahoma. All of the musicians in the band are professionals who dedicate their lives to music. With an impressive catalog of tunes ranging from John Coltrane and Miles Davis to Chick Corea, and from Weather Report to John Scofield, it seems like there isn't anything that they can't play. They are also very dedicated to writing their own original compositions.
