Go to the dogs ! (en)
In their not so long (but longing) story, the guys from Go To The Dogs ! have already known several lives. Rich in their diﬀerences and their funk, folk or rap aﬃnities, the quintet has gathered around a holy trinity : Ornette (Coleman), (John) Zorn and Marc Ribot. Placing yourself under the aegis of these three monuments is to consider jazz as a ﬂammable material, which can ﬁre any wood : punk branches, free twigs, rock buds, Americana roots or Latin foliage. It is to love the exclama on marks, the curious combinations and the expressions with the word dog. In short, it’s seeing music as a playground where we laugh at being so free.
