Combining ancient ethnic percussion with traditional
Jazz, the Plunkett Project provides a symbiotic brew of classical art forms with
distinctive percussion from Africa, Cuba, Brazil, Ireland, Iran, India, Ghana,
Turkey, and the Balkans.
The members of the band, father and son team Patrick (tenor/soprano saxophone)
and Aaron Plunkett (drums/ethnic percussion), Jim Szilagyi (piano), and Jotty
Johnson (bass), have created a synthesis of textures on the Plunkett Project.
Extensive solo material is displayed by each of the members, while an underlying
emphasis on ethnic drumming gives the music an endless sea of colors from which
to paint its sound. The interesting rhythm tracks, arranged by Aaron Plunkett,
contribute an entirely new energy to the music.
