Local: Jazz

One of the overlooked gems of local recording in 1997, Dream of the Serpent Dog is exotic, swinging, warm and resonant. The CD suggests Parisian bistros, treks across North Africa, a Mediterranean cruise or a nap on a beach in Brazil -- anything but the lake cabins and hot dishes here in Minnesota.

Hoover plays masterful chromatic harmonica, in the tradition of Toots Thielemans. Chenoweth adds full-bodied jazz bass. Bobby E. serves up his own idiosyncratic mix of folk, blues, bristling swing and chamber poetics on guitar.

All three write beautiful, engaging themes. And Max Santiago tosses in creative and complementary beats, deftly using congas, bongos, triangle, trap set, a percussion tree and the edge of his cymbals.
