DOG
Dog

DARK LIGHT
Jonathan Crayford

Dog is an Auckland quartet featuring four of New Zealand's most highly regarded jazz musicians/composers, and with DOG, their superb first album, they mark their Rattle Jazz debut. The music is fresh and vibrant, composed and performed by four outstanding, highly disciplined artists who live and breathe jazz – and it shows. These guys are barking good! Ruff ruff!!

Jonathan Crayford marks his Rattle debut with the exceptional DARK LIGHT. Recorded at Systems Two in New York City by Mike Marciano, the album features Ben Street on bass and Dan Weiss on drums, two of the most remarkable (and highly in demand) of the new generation of New York jazz musicians.

THE CUT
Alexis French

yeahyeahabsolutelynoway! is an Adelaide-­‐based jazz trio comprised of two guitars and drums. The group write and perform contemporary jazz that is firmly and affectionately rooted in 70's fusion. Their genre-­bending style brings together elements from the jazz tradition with tinges of rock and smatterings of ambient loveliness, weaving composition and improvisation in a unique and imaginative way, creating original music that can be both subtle and explosive.

Trumpeter Alexis French returns to New Zealand from his studies in Montreal with an Honours Degree under one arm and this exceptional album under the other. All self-penned, the music on THE CUT features a tight ensemble of some of the best young jazz talent in Canada.
