Le quintet Go To The Dogs! se joue des styles puisqu’il y a longtemps que les étiquettes ne riment plus à rien. Aristide D’Agostino à la trompette, Arnaud Edel à la guitare, Thibaud Thiolon à la basse et Jean-Emmanuel Doucet à la batterie zappent à la Zorn, swinguent funk et rockent impertinents.
In their not so long (but longing) story, the guys from Go To The Dogs! have already known several lives. Rich in their differences and their funk, folk or rap affinities, the quintet has gathered around a holy trinity: Ornette (Coleman), (John) Zorn and Marc Ribot. Placing yourself under the aegis of these three monuments is to consider jazz as a flammable material, which can fire any wood: punk branches, free twigs, rock buds, Americana roots or Latin foliage. It is to love the exclamation marks, the curious combinations and the expressions with the word dog. In short, it's seeing music as a playground where we laugh at being so free.
