Album Review

This collection of ten blues and blues-rock tracks represents jazz guitarist Scott Henderson's tribute (if not complete return) to the emotive guitar playing of his early guitar influences: Jimmy Page and Albert King. Released in 1994 after a string of highly acclaimed jazz fusion recordings, Dog Party won equal approval from the fickle guitar virtuoso press and fan base, winning every important magazine readers poll for best blues recording. Accompanying Henderson on drums and vocals is drummer, vocalist, and fellow Tribal Tech member Kirk Covington; bassist Richard Ruse; and a host of heavyweight guest guitarists, vocalists, keyboard players, and other instrumentalists. The music is comparatively direct relative to Henderson's fusion work, but the guitarist's chord and phrasing mastery is plenty evident throughout Dog Party. Choice tracks include the vibrant "Milk Bone," the fuzzed-out and excessive "Hound Dog" cover, and the furious opener, "Hole Diggin'." These stretched-out tracks are pure musical treats, while the more pop- and rock-structured cuts have an effect that might leave fans feeling as if something (specifically, the guitarist's tasty soloing) is being unduly held back. Smart, syncopated, and snappy, Dog Party is a feast of stylish blues served with grace and feeling.

Customer Reviews

great chops, great sense of humor, obviously loves dogs

this is one of the finest examples of super guitarist/musician (Scott Henderson) showing he can master anything type of music he choses to play

great quality blues album, next stevie ray vaughn

guitar is unbeleivably insane, its like an stevie ray vaughn and bb king combined into one guitar player with amazing licks and clear sustained notes that tell a story like no other

Stevie Ray Fun!

For SRV fans, this is a must. Songs about dogs, stuffed with heavenly supercharged Stevie Strat sounds. Scott Henderson is well known to guitar players, often voted best jazz player in magazines; this album was voted best blues album of 1994 in Guitar Player magazine. Mostly a fusion virtuoso, Henderson reveals a soft spot for Tex-blues. Lyics are strictly tounge in cheek; snobs may be offended. Best songs for SRV fans: Hole Diggin', Fence Climbin', Dog Walk, Smelly ol' Dog. The other songs are fun too, but more shreddy. 'Too Many Gittars' will make guitar players turn white as a sheet. If this album rings your bell, try Gary Hoey too.
