Building on the Plainville debut that earned �Top 10″ spots in the Village Voice, Chicago Reader, Boston Pheonix, Jazzman (France), and National Public Radio�s A Blog Supreme, Jeremy Udden�s Plainville is a brand new installment on Sunnyside.
It�s amazing when a band comes along that sounds at once familiar and totally unique. Saxophonist Jeremy Udden has put together a group that blends the sounds of traditional folk, roots and country with modern jazz. He calls it Plainville (after his hometown in Massachusetts). Plainville is actually an alt-country/folk band in disguise as a jazz combo. This comes across plainly on their new Sunnyside release entitled If the Past Seems So Bright. The band is an assembly of some of New York�s finest creative musicians; including banjoist/guitarist Brandon Seabrook, keyboard/slide guitar player Pete Rende, bassist Eivind Opsvik and drummer RJ Miller. The recording also features special guest appearance by vocalists Nathan Blehar and Justin Keller.
