Plunky & Oneness – Only You

Plunky & Oneness, is an overnight success story, 50 years in the making. An early proponent of Afro-jazz and funk, Plunky, with his group Oneness of Juju with their deep rare grooves and progressive political themes, received international critical acclaim. Plunky: Juju Jazz Funk & Oneness is all about decades of transitions, completed circles, and momentous meetings. It is not a standard sex, drugs and rock & roll exposé; rather it is an insider’s look behind the scenes of the independent Black jazz and soul music business and Plunky’s philosophies and methodologies that allowed him to persevere and come out on top.

Plunky & Oneness has released Only You,a four-song EP on March 13, 2018. While this maxi-single focuses on smooth grooves, the four tracks still showcase the variety, versatility and vibes the group has shown for more than 40 years and 25 albums. But newness and innovation are also display on this EP as Plunky and his son, J. Fire Branch, have produced a collection of personal songs with multiple layers of beats, sounds and meanings.
