Gordon McLeod's music is a rich amalgam of elements including gypsy jazz and swing, Irish traditional music, original songs and compositions, folk songs and classical elements. As a performer, in bands like Daddy G and His Amazing Swingtet, Beyond The Pale and The Aisling String Trio, and as a solo performer, sideman, recording engineer and producer, Gordon is a fixture of the North Texas music community. Known for live instrumental work on violin and guitar and vocals and for his work in the studio on many instruments as well as behind the recording console, Gordon has enjoyed performing and recording in the North Texas area for many years.
As his alter-ego, Daddy G, Gordon swings on violin and guitar with his Amazing Swingtet , who have just released Daddy G and His Amazing Swingtet, their first full length recording of Gordon's original jazz and swing compositions and songs along with some great standards, all with a gypsy flair in the tradition of Django Reinhardt and Stepahne Grapelli.
