Dog Face

(Gary Windo)
Release Date: 
Tuesday, November 5, 2013
Of the three Gary Windo albums that I reviewed this week Dog Face is probably the hardest to connect with due to the fact that it’s all over the map. You’ve got this crazy dog theme that’s somewhere between Fritz the Cat (but with dogs), George Clinton, and Frank Zappa. On paper that all sounds good, but the execution of the album is like putting all these idea’s into a basket and then dropping it down the stairs, everything fall as it may. Very abstract Jazz. 
I gave the album quite a few spins. One of my favorites was Rex and Spot Meet the International Bitches, a very concentrated tune, in contrast with the rest of the album that really had fun with itself. As for the rest of the album, moments of clarity pop up here and there, but for the most part its mostly all free form jazz that seems boundless with Windo exploding into a seemingly directionless execution, but like it’s said in The Legend of 1900, “If you don’t know what it is, it’s Jazz”.
