Plunky &Oneness; Release New Single: John Legend's TONIGHT

Saxophonist J. Plunky Branch’s latest single release is a neo-jazz adaptation of the John Legend hit song, “Tonight (Best You Ever Had).”  Plunky spices the ballad with some smooth sax, sensual female vocals and well-placed funky go-go beats for a danceable adaptation that is reminiscent of the saxophone-led hit of yester-year, “Mr. Magic.”

Throughout his career Plunky has pushed boundaries and redefined musical genres with his signature jazz, world beat, funk, hip-hop, gospel and African amalgamations.  His experience and versatility keeps him at the top of booking agents’ and presenters’ lists for club engagements, balls and galas and concerts.  The funky grooves and mellow tones of Plunky’s new single, places it squarely within the smooth jazz category, just in time for the summer festival season.  N.A.M.E Brand Records has announced that Plunky will release a series of singles over the next few months, showcasing the legendary artist's depth, eclecticism and broad musical interests.  In the coming weeks, “Tonight” will be followed by more go-go, some funk, and Plunky's unique brand of saxy, smooth jazz, all leading up to his next CD album.  But “Tonight” is gonna be the (Best You Ever Had)…
