Fusion combo Sea Level was formed in 1976 by keyboardist Chuck Leavell, bassist Lamar Williams, and drummer Jai Johanny Jaimoe Johanson following their exit from the Allman Brothers Band.
Guitarist Jimmy Nalls completed the original lineup, which in 1977 issued its self-titled debut LP on the Capricorn label.
Honing its distinctive marriage of rock, blues, and jazz through relentless touring, the group returned to the studio to cut 1978s Cats on the Coast, followed later that year by On the Edge.
Although Jaimoe returned to the Allmans, Sea Level recorded two more albums -- 1979s Long Walk on a Short Pier and 1980s Ball Room -- before dissolving.
Leavell later emerged as a sought-after session player and producer, also touring with the Rolling Stones. In 1998, he issued his debut solo LP, What's in That Bag?. Sadly, Williams died of Agent Orange-related cancer on January 25, 1983.
