Terry Plumeri

Terry Plumeri's innovative style of bowing jazz solos on the acoustic bass has garnered comments like “Stunning... a very high level of music...” from the Washington Post. “Terry Plumeri's bowed bass work is endlessly compelling” from All About Jazz. “Extraordinary bowing facility” from Jazz Improv Magazine.

In speaking about his latest jazz release Blue In Green, Jazz Improv Magazine has said “The performances and solo improvisations on the parts of Terry Plumeri on bass, David Goldblatt on piano and Joe La Barbera on drums are outstanding. 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. Go and listen.”
