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.”

Terry Plumeri has just completed recording the 4th, 5th and 6th symphonies of Tchaikovsky as conductor of the Moscow Philharmonic for a summer 2007 release on the GMMC Records CD label. In the past, Terry's recordings with the Moscow Philharmonic of his original compositions have received such words of praise from Fanfare Magazine as, “These well-prepared composer-conducted performances and recordings are both technically and esthetically stunning. The emotional curve of Plumeri's music has a dramatic inevitability that carries the listener along without questioning and leaves him fully gratified, very much like the best of Tchaikovsky's efforts.” The Washington Post has said of these recordings, “Plumeri conducts the Moscow Philharmonic in a performance sensitive to the music's smallest nuances.”
