This week at Jazz re:freshed, we are doing our bit for cross-channel relations, as we welcome the formidable HornDogz to the Mau Mau stage, all the way from Paris. The incredibly funky horn led outfit will be joined by our very UK lyricist and Jazz re:freshed extended family member, BREIS.
HornDogz is a trio of producers made up of Eric «Shrizzadelic» Rohner (saxophones), Gil «C-Freak» Garin (trumpet) and Rico «Adiko» Kerridge (guitar / composition).
They have chosen to invite artists they encountered on this or the other side of the Channel and Atlantic in order to record an album with the producer Adam Bastard, due to be released on the label Uptone Records:
WHAT HAVE YOU BEEN BLOWING UP LATELY ?
In the course of summer 2010 they stand in for the P-Funk All Stars horn section of George Clinton during his French tour. For this occasion they are baptized «HornDogz» by bassist Lige Curry with whom they record as a result of this very tour.
For a long time they have been itching for a musical project highlighting the horns, they adopt this name in order to tell their «canine horn stories». HornDogz was born.
Together with guitarist/composer Rico «Adiko» Kerridge the trio of producers invite the following to join them to record a mind-blowing album:
Amp Fiddler, Bibi Tanga, Blitz the Ambassador, Breis, Fred Wesley, Greg Boyer, Jee Williams, Juan Rozoff, Lige Curry, Mary Griffin, Michael Clip Payne, Mike Larry & Jude Kidsude Pericles, P-Funk Horns, Peeda, Sadiq Bey & Ty.
Instrumental but not only, Jazz maybe, certainly danceable!
A horny sound with the dog in it!
The HornDogz alongside BREIS, will be at Jazz re:freshed this Thursday 23rd May 2013, the details below:
See you there.
