Review Text 2014 release, the 25th album from Afro-Funk Jazz veteran, J. Plunky Branch and his group Plunky & Oneness. The ambitious 16-song collection includes Neo-Soul, Nu-Jazz, and Hip Hop songs about love, wisdom and purposeful partying. With Never Too Late Plunky & Oneness prove that eclecticism is no vice and variety can be it's own reward. Produced by Plunky and his talented son, J. Fire Branch, NEVER TOO LATE is a collage of musical cross references and transmutations. The album begins with Neo-Soul love songs, and it ends with Go-Go and Funk. But, it is the meaningful message music in the middle that is the Hip Hop Jazz, heart and soul of the album. This is cutting edge stuff produced by Fire sampling Plunkys songs from the 1970s, 80s and 90s and dubbing in new live performances and looped beats. This is father and son using past and present techniques to create future music.
