Plunky Releases His Latest CD DRIVE IT - A New Funky Jazz Classic
New Urban jazz artist Plunky follows up his nationally acclaimed hit â€œDropâ€ with Drive It, a new 14-song CD album of pipin' hot dance music, funk, jazz and Go-Go. The hour-long disc revs it up, puts it in gear and stomps on the gas. Destination...the dance floor of the hottest spots in the city for the real grown and sexy. The CD takes off with the up tempo title song â€œDrive It,â€ a hypnotic instrumental groove with classic hit potential amongst urban radio and club audiences alike. Next, Plunky brings back a 80's inspired Euro-retro-dance sound with â€œGotta Keep Moving,â€ followed by the horn driven party starter â€œEvery Way But Loose,â€ a remake of his 1982 release, which charted in both the US and London. Plunky also pays homage to the Mid-Atlantic Go-Go sound with a medley of DC flavored songs like â€œLife â€“ Youâ€™re Full Of Itâ€ and â€œA Swing In Everything.â€ In addition to jazzed out instrumentals there are also funkafied teasers like â€œToy Boxâ€, which is playful and risquÃ© ala Cameo; and, â€œSynchrofunkinicity,â€ a Parliamentonic diatribe with a nasty low end. Drive It is a musical voyage of rhythmic styles: vocal and instrumental; smooth but pumped up; diverse yet consistently movingâ€¦ This album is chock full of strong grooves destined to become urban radio and club faves. Nationally syndicated radio host Michael Baisden and other urban and jazz deejays made Plunkyâ€™s â€œDropâ€ the urban-contemporary jazz song of 2007. Drive It will solidify Plunkyâ€™s place in the forefront of the new urban music scene. Plunky is already planning an East Coast promotional tour, festival dates in the US and Europe, in addition to highly anticipated club dates in his hometown of Richmond, VA. Plunky has released 25 albums in his 40-year career. Drive It proves he knows how to shift gears and keep it moving.
