Sign in to view read count
GMMC Records released Terry Plumeri's innovative jazz recording, Blue In Green. Blue In Green is something brand new in the world of recorded jazz. The entire CD showcases the exclusive use of the bowed acoustic bass, occupying the featured role in a repertoire of jazz standards. The extraordinary beauty of tone and technical proficiency shown on the bass, makes for a new and memorable listening experience. Plumeri's bowed bass work is endlessly compelling. Pair it with musicians the caliber of David Goldblatt (piano) and the great Joe La Barbera (drums) on a choice selection of standards and the effect is stunning.

In speaking about the recording, Terry has said, “Blue In Green is one of my favorite recordings and one in which I feel accurately represented. The equality of each contributing musician makes for a trio with a very unified voice. Playing with David and Joe is always a special treat."

David Goldblatt contributes an unusually warm and spacious harmonic environment for the trio. The landscape created on Blue In Green leaves one feeling as though they have not only extended the dark moody flavors of Miles Davis' Kind Of Blue recording, but have revisited that room from a newly discovered doorway.

Joe LaBarbera of The Bill Evans Trio fame, provides one of his finest recordings in recent years. In addition to his relentless sensitivity and tasteful contribution to the moment-to-moment growth of the music, there are three beautifully constructed drum solos. His solo on “Beautiful Love" is a rare treat of brush activated drum and cymbal colors.

Blue In Green is an album bubbling with creativity, interactivity, magnificent improvisations, and the combined experience, sensitivity, and desire of three consummate musicians performing eight essential pieces from the jazz and standard repertoire. The performances and solo improvisations on the parts of Terry Plumeri on bass, David Goldblatt on piano and Joe LaBarbera on drums are outstanding.

Terry Plumeri's He Who Lives In Many Places, is GMMC Records next release and will feature pianist Herbie Hancock and guitarist John Abercrombie on a CD of all Terry Plumeri original compositions. Stores, CD Baby, Barnes & Nobles, and Amazon.com and along with a variety of online mp3 sales fronts will begin carrying Terry Plumeri's He Who Lives In Many Places beginning January 15th, 2007 and carry's the Blue In Green title now.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
