Ceramic Dog

Marc Ribot is one of the most versatile guitarists on the New York jazz and avant-garde scene; he has worked together with such different musicians as Tom Waits und John Zorn, Marianne Faithfull and McCoy Tyner. In 2008 Ribot founded his band Ceramic Dog, an explosive power trio with a noisy, rough-edged sound that is a little reminiscent of early Sonic Youth, but can also sound nuanced and contemplative. Ceramic Dog plays music that is essentially a strictly organised chaos of harsh guitar riffs and stoical, complex funk rhythms, coupled with political commentaries and absurd humour.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
