Planet9 unites musicians in pop/jazz forum that they call East Coast Cool. The smooth jazz world got a little jazzier when in 2001 they debuted Cool Breeze CD. This mostly instrumental jazz collection garnered the group a Best New Artist nomination. The second CD from this talented group of jazz musicians was the smash 9 Days of Christmas becoming the #3 most played seasonal CD (2002) and the #2 most played seasonal CD (2003). Rearview, the latest smooth jazz & pop CD from Planet9 produces new, original music and familiar covers that have a highly melodic, rhythmic & energetic performance and of course, a hint of humor. Planet9 is a wonderful immersion into contemporary smooth jazz!
