Leonid & Friends is an extremely tight, contemporary jazz-rock band from Moscow. Their cover tune, “25 or 6 to 4” by Chicago, might surprise you. It sure did me.
According to their Facebook page, Leonid Vorobyev decided to gather his musician friends to record one of his favorite cover tunes by the band, Chicago. The success of that one song led to seven more and the addition of even more musicians, which includes not just vocals, guitar, bass, drums, and keys, but a full horn section, violin, and flute.

Those that cry "freedom" often are the oppressors.
Science can't explain everything, but religion can't explain anything.
Those that are free don't have the need to mention it about every 5 minutes.
