Planet D’ Nonet
Planet D spins in its own orbit around the jazz sun – in their case, Sun Ra – and channels years of musical experience and feeling into their performances. They have a special repertoire including compositions by Sun Ra, Fletcher Henderson and Ellington, funked up with R&B numbers by legendary bandleader Buddy Johnson and Detroit stars Paul Williams and Todd Rhodes.
