WHO IS PI?
* Pi * improvises a unique blend of jazz and drum 'n bass combining the high powered drumming of Kevin Sawka and the relentless groove of bassist Thomas Bell with the blistering horn of Dave Carter. Add Leif Dalan's spicy jazz voicing's on Fender Rhodes and you have a perfect blend of Jazz infused Drum 'n Bass. Expect to hear loops and effects screaming from Mr. Carter's horn. Mr. Bell's super low effected sub bass will shake the foundation and keyboardist Leif Dalan adds an over the top aggressive keyboard style. Mr. Sawka's intense drumming cements the group into a tightly nit improvised unit
