Dog Soup

Dog Soup is a group led by trumpeter Robbie Robson, with John Turville on Fender Rhodes, Johnny Brierley on Bass and Tim Giles on Drums. The band began as a transcription project to play the music of Miles Davis’ 1969 "lost quintet". It is one of Miles’ seminal bands, but due to the fact that there are no commercial studio albums recorded by the unit, the music is relatively unknown, and rarely played.

The band also use a number of electronic effects to create different textures and colours - samplers and loops creating a swirling bed of music over which to improvise. This creates a seething electronic stew, blurring the distinctions between gritty, dark grooves, electronic sounds, loops and samples and free group improvisation.
