The Ploctones represent everything that jazz is about. They express a feeling of liberation, that can only exist in your wildest fantasies. Their music swings, howls, vibrates, bangs and whacks like nothing else. And if you would describe improvisation as ‘a question of catching what goes around’, then the Ploctones prove that they have perfectly tuned antenna for this. Half a note is enough to create a musical universe. But there is not only jazz in this universe.
If you try to put a lable on the Ploctones, they will deliberately break the barriers. So what is it that the Ploctones blow through their microphones? Jazz rock, blues or funk? It is all of that. Latin, kaseko, punk, pop, r&b, country, bluegrass? All styles are in there. Goudsmit, Trujillo, Vierdag & Vink devour every great musical idea with pleasant greed and their joy is utterly contagious.
