Auckland quartet Dog took out the Jazz Album of the Year at the 2014 NZ Music Awards for their exceptional self-titled Rattle debut.
Four of New Zealand's most highly regarded jazz musicians, composers, and educators, made their Rattle debut with an album that puts a stake in the ground for new Zealand jazz. The music on this recording is fresh and vibrant, composed and performed by four outstanding, highly disciplined artists who live and breathe their music – and my goodness it shows!
In a year when all three of the nominees for Jazz Album of the Year were Rattle releases — and all seriously strong by any standard — it was more than fitting that this album proved to be the top Dog!
