O’s Notes: Plunge is a brassy septet that plays in the spirit of New Orleans jazz. They are Mark McGrain (tb), Robert Walter (organ), Kirk Joseph (sousaphone), Simon Lott (d, perc), Tom Fitzpatrick (ts, fl), James Singleton (b) and the late Tim Green (sax). The music is funky, syncopated and brassy. They use electronics to add fresh perspectives to their music of several selections notably “Monkey Mitts”. We also enjoyed “Schoolie’s Day”, “The Jilt” and “Exit Strategy”. In For The Out is dedicated to the memory of Tim McGrain and Tim Green, both who passed in 2014. It is a fine tribute indeed.
