Loose Ends In the mid 1980’s, there was a radio programming phenomena that could be described as New Age Pop. Today "Plunge" is still in rotation on satellite radio. During that time, Michael performed every year for a gathering of people from the Christmas holiday through New Year at the Asilomar conference center on the Monterey Peninsula in California. The conference was hosted by Brugh Joy and David Spangler, each year having a specific theme. Wisdomkeepers associated with the theme were invited to speak and Michael would play concerts to open for them. He wrote a lot of music for those concerts. Got it. + add. album.

Plunge is a hit-and-miss CD by Michael Stearns. He deserves kudos for taking a risk and trying something different, but the overall is a somewhat uneven montage of e-music and soft jazz riffs. His arrangements are superb, and the notes are right. The styles just don't mix that well, and the soundscape is entirely too busy.

Artists Michael Stearns Plunge. This album has an average beat per minute of 136 BPM (slowest/fastest tempos: 64/174 BPM). See the BPM profile of this album.
