DOG Your Turn Yel­lowbird In­flu­en­tial ses­sion gui­tarist Marc Ri­bot de­lights in be­ing un­cat­e­goris­able. His sav­agely loud and of­ten dis­cor­dant trio (with bassist Shahzad Is­maily and drum­mer Ches Smith) will cer­tainly have the jazz po­lice scratch­ing their heads and won­der­ing how this par­tic­u­lar mon­grel got un­der the fence – he even sings, for good­ness sake, and not about nice things like princes and valen­tines ! But for those raised on loud gui­tars and snarled so­cial crit­i­cism, Ce­ramic Dog is a wel­come blast of cold, with­er­ingly sar­cas­tic air. Think John Zorn meets Frank Zappa meets New York Dolls meets Beastie Boys and you’re whistling past the right grave­yard. If you need a cat­e­gory, call it post-punk jazz for the think­ing per­son who doesn’t think much of cat­e­gories. mar­cri­bot.com
