Peppy, shimmy and knowing. Restorative and vital. Second line sunshine.
Brooklyn Blues is he first track on drummer Dan Pugach's stellar nonet recording Plus One. Gathering some of New York's finest musicians in his Nonet, Pugach's Plus One is an exciting ride encompassing a New Orleans second-line strut, expansive arrangements of familiar pop material, and dynamite original compositions performed in classic small ensemble tradition. Pugach's compositions and arrangements mirror his personality as a drummer. Each note flying off his drums, cymbals and percussion is concise, poised and delivered with purpose.
