Planet Zu is the brainchild of guitarist/composer Dan Baraszu in collaboration with some of the finest musicians in the southeast. The instrumentation is Nylon Electric Guitar, Acoustic Guitar, Hammond A-100 Organ, Electric Bass and Drums. Though labeled a “contemporary Jazz” group, Planet Zu’s music is the amalgamation of jazz, funk, rock, acoustic, pop, jam-band and fun. The Bands focus is on original material, though they are known for their unique arrangements of some popular cover tunes.
Their album In The Light Of Day combines organic instrumentation with a nujazz feel and is now available at CDBaby.
