"Bring Back Pluto" was formed in the summer of 2006 as a way of releasing some of the funk demons that had been lurking in its three members. Mark Jodice trades in his big hollow for a strat and lets it rip throughout. Jerry Wilfong drops the dog house for a pork chop, while Sai Ghose plays hooky from the land of black and white and lays down the groove underneath.
The trio's roots are broad, ranging from funk to heavy metal. But they also bring their jazz sensibilities, seasoned on stages across the country from Yoshi's in Oakland, to Sculler's in Boston, to bring you a truly original guitar trio.
It’s the little things that make the difference. For example, there’s a point during Bring Back Pluto’s “They’ve Landed” where the jazz-funk groove builds into a crescendo and then suddenly drops, the result being an ephemeral feeling of falling to Earth. It’s the sort of thing that happens a lot on the band’s album, “Underneath,” a cornucopia of high-flying guitar-driven instrumentals that finds its inspiration everywhere from jazz to metal
