Jazz Hounds Dogma

'Dogma' is the Jazz Hounds follow up to their successful 'Every Dog Has Its Day' debut album and continues the doggy pun titles and exhilarating and fresh sound of that album. The Jazz Hounds are a Pretoria group who's roots go back to the '70s when guitarist Greg Georgiades and flautist Chris Tokalon began playing together in an assortment of incarnations. Georgiades is a talented guitarist in the Santana mode and he has always striven to fuse his love for fusion and rock with the indigenous sounds of South Africa. Chris Tokalon (the man in the cap) has played with Tony Cox, Steve Newman and practically a  who's who of SA jazz-funk. Together with bassist Leon Ecroignard and percussionist Wynand van der Walt, these two have crafted another album brimful of jazz, funk and SA styles which compares easily with anything Tananas has produced in the past few years.

This CD has a crisp and spacey production coupled with a bunch of delectable songs and arrangements that typify their Pretoria jazz sound. Opening track 'Niteflight' sets the scene with its bass-driven groove and Tokalon and Georgiades flourishes. Georgiades also plays the Oud, which is a North African Arabic fretless lute, to give this music an all round Pan African sound. Tracks like 'Salty', 'Dance In Trance' and 'Déjà Vu' swish by with a delicate energy and melodious mix. As a whole, 'Dogma' is a strong and satisfying SA album to kick off 1999 and is very recommended.
