Ron Samworth – Dogs Do Dream

Tuesday 11th, July 2017 / 11:03

 

By James Olson

Drip Audio

Composer/guitarist Ron Samworth has created something unique on his latest release Dogs Do Dream. Inspired by scientific studies indicating that some mammals, namely dogs, do dream while sleeping, the veteran jazz musician has crafted a suite of imagined dog dreams. Combining spoken word narration and freeform jazz compositions, Dogs Do Dream is a suitably bizarre listening experience. The narration provided by Barbara Adler is vivid and at points uncompromising. The text covers a range of sensations and experiences in the life of a dog ranging from the affectionate (chasing a frisbee) to the unseemly (sniffing through garbage). The largely improvised interplay between Samworth and long time collaborators including Peggy Lee (cello) and Dylan van der Schyff (drums/marimba) is commendably cohesive in terms of creating a mood and atmosphere to accompany the narration. Dogs Do Dream is a willfully difficult album but its creative premise is undeniably avant-garde.
