Dirty Linen

by Dan Willging

Plunge is an explosive quartet that's a cross between a downsized New Orleans brass band and an avant-garde jazz ensemble you'd find in Greenwich Village.   The New Orleans aspect enters in as Marcus Rojas' pumping tuba playing could easily fit in any Crescent City brass band while Bob Moses' drumming provides a funky, behind-the-beat delivery. But the kicker is that the highest frequency instrument is, oddly enough, a trombone. Plunge drives ahead with catchy, hip-hop sounds wrapped in a deep, heavy groove. The feel is often airy, then slowly softens for a dazzling, almost tribal, drum solo. Occasionally, abstract, cacophonic voice-overs seize control which are delightfully bizarre.
