Are you ready to take the “Plunge“? For those of you who are ready to dig into a groundbreaking alternative, jazz that’s inventive, hip, thick around the edges, percussive beats that are sonically sobering, or grooves without borders … perhaps a sound that falls somewhere within the neighborhood of artists like Charlie Hunter and Medeski, Martin, & Wood. Well my fellow connoisseurs of jazz, look no further … the legendary drummer, arranger and producer Bob Moses and his fabulous cast drops a superb album titled “Falling with Grace” for your listening pleasure! ~ The Urban Flux
