About the Album

The Dog is loose again! ON DOG’s long-awaited third album is out. Since On Dog’s inception, in 2012, it has been clear that this combination of international players – all experienced improvisers and bandleaders – had natural access to a beautiful musical common ground. Their debut in two volumes (Part One – Sloeblack and Part Two – White Horse y La Rumba, ILK 2013) was warmly welcomed by critics and audience and led to an intense live activity in Europe, including Copenhagen Jazz Festival, Sunship, Jazz Luxembourg, Jazzhouse (Cph.), Metastasio Jazz, Correggio Jazz Festival, Südtirol Jazz Festival, Casa del Jazz (Rome), Jazz Club Ferrara, Teatro Sant Andrea a.o. After 8 years of work, the early compositional strategies – mostly based on polyphony and long, through-composed forms – have been complemented by developing improvisational practices that are highly informed by the dense written material. The original threads – groove-oriented tracks with rocking bursts carried by baritone, guitar and drums on one end, chamber-like passages on the other – are now glued together into smaller, condensed forms, with an unconventional use of synthesizers, electronics and extended woodwind techniques. All performed by some of the finest and original players from Italy, Copenhagen and Berlin. Recorded in 2016 in the beautiful, reverberant Koncertkirken and the clear, generous, main room at The Village Recording in Copenhagen, these tracks stayed in the drawer, waiting for dissemination in small chunks and multiple formats to fit the iridescent quality of the music. The current lockdown due to the virus outbreak urged Bigoni and Solborg to synthesise these outcomes from another world into a single output. The 2020 Dog has matured, is carefully selected and is as On as ever. Enjoy your listening!

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
