Plunge

Mark McGrain

Composer and trombonist.

“McGrain aptly demonstrates that he understands the potent power of the bass frequency as he leads his ensemble into this low-registered fling spiced by the merrymaking revelry and percussive buoyancy of New Orleans Mardi Gras and Brazilian Carnival.” (Dan Ouellette, DownBeat * * * * )

“McGrain is a daring trombonist, to be commended for his vision of this tonally unique group.” (Robin Tolleson, Modern Drummer)

James Singleton

Composer, bassist, band leader, and multi-instrumentalist James Singleton has made his home in New Orleans since 1977.

Tim Green

Tim Green is arguably the finest saxophone player in New Orleans, and one of the most sought after musicians around the country for both session work and gigs. In addition to being a top-notch musician, Tim Green has dedicated himself and continues to dedicate his time to a host of worthy causes. Tim was awarded President George H.W. Bush's 257th Point of Light.

Avishai Cohen

An internationally reknown composer and artist, Avishai fits his bass into a uniquely counter-melodic and percussive role in Plunge.

Marcus Rojas

Marcus Rojas is considered one of “the best all around tuba players in the world” (Harvey Pekar,Jazziz). He has developed a style of playing that brings a new sense of flexibility and timbre to the tuba while expanding its role in both solo and ensemble settings. Plunge offers Rojas the opportunity to stretch out and take a front-line role.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place 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 effort that will help musicians 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 bottom right video ad). Thank you.
