The group Plunge is from New Orleans and is considered one of the most successful new contributors to NO-jazz. Trombonist Mark McGrain is the hub around which a saxophonist, a drummer and a bass player form the band. For this album the group was supplemented with a Hammond organ player and two saxophonists. The solid NO-soil under the sound of Plunge is determined by sousaphone player Kirk Joseph (son of trombonist ‘Frog’ Joseph) and drummer Simon Lott. The grooves of these two fit so seamlessly into each other that the other musicians have to swing, whether they want it or not. Get Album
