Ian Dogole's Featured CDs/DVDs


Outside the Box CD
Outside the Box (Double CD)

Outside the Box - Jazz Journeys & Worlds Beyond, a double CD from recording artist, percussionist, composer and bandleader Ian Dogole, ventures into a musical universe that knows no boundaries. On this recording, listeners will experience an epic musical odyssey that traverses an ever-changing aural landscape - from original compositions inspired by the ancient Silk Road, the trance-inducing rhythms of the Sahara Desert and the passionate flamenco music of Andalusia - to new interpretations of timeless compositions by Alice Coltrane, Ornette Coleman, Wayne Shorter, Thelonious Monk and Milton Nascimento - to improvisational treks into the shamanic realms of the Peruvian high Andes and beyond.

Price: $20.00

Crossroads CD
Crossroads (CD)

Crossroads (Sunnyside Records) is the third recording by the group Hemispheres, following the release of their DVD, Ian Dogole & Hemispheres in Concert (Global Fusion Music) and their CD Convergence (Jazzheads). As is the hallmark of any Hemispheres project, Crossroads offers a kaleidoscopic brew of musical styles, instrumentation and moods, moving seamlessly between the jazz and world music arenas.

The majority of the compositions are group originals, coming from leader/percussionist Ian Dogole and woodwind virtuosi Sheldon Brown and Paul McCandless. Fresh interpretations of compositions by guitarist/pianist Ralph Towner, legendary trumpeter Woody Shaw and Iranian composer/multi-instrumentalist Hossein Alizadeh round out the recording. Bassist Bill Douglass, pianist Frank Martin and special guest vocalist Hossein Massoudi deliver sparkling contributions to this CD. This project was launched with the help of a Career Development Grant from the Marin Arts Council.

Price: $15.00

Convergence CD
Convergence (CD)

The name Hemispheres reflects the wide range of musical styles and disparate indigenous influences that shape our music. While the wide-ranging music on this recording can be conveniently classified as Jazz, due to the preponderance of improvisation and Jazz-based song forms, the listener will quickly note the infusions of African, South American, Middle Eastern and Asian flavors and instruments that permeate the proceedings.

The title Convergence dovetails with the group name Hemispheres to convey the myriad intersections that enable us to superimpose our Jazz sensibilities over traditional pieces from Turkey (Hijaz Oyun Havasi) and Brazil (Mistura e Manda), as well as to present the steel pan-hybrid instrument, the hang, as the cornerstone of a multi-episodic composition (Smiles for Billy) dedicated to the late, legendary drummer Billy Higgins.

Ian Dogole & Hemispheres In Concert
(DVD)
Ian Dogole & Hemispheres In Concert (DVD)

On May 23, 2003, The Marin Jazz Arts Society and The Mill Valley Chamber of Commerce presented Ian Dogole & Hemispheres in concert at the 142 Throckmorton Theatre in Mill Valley, California. The performance presented on this DVD reveals the magic that was “caught in a bottle” that night by multipercussionist Ian Dogole, 2-time Grammy Award nominee Paul McCandless on woodwinds, Sheldon Brown on woodwinds and Bill Douglass on double bass and bamboo flute.

Bay Area filmmaker Jamie Campana of FilmCamp Films has crafted an engaging portrayal of an enchanting concert event plus a fascinating behind-the-scenes glimpse into what makes the music of Ian Dogole & Hemispheres so unique.

Ian Dogole & Hemispheres re-energize compositions as diverse as John Coltrane's "Equinox," "Hijaz Oyun Havasi," a traditional Turkish piece, and a free improvisation featuring the Hang, (a stunning creation based on the steel pan), entitled "Smiles for Billy," dedicated to the late legendary Jazz drummer, Billy Higgins.

Night Harvest CD
Night Harvest (CD)

Imagine Thelonious Monk's Bemsha Swing performed with cajon (Peruvian box drum), double bass and four horns. Or McCoy Tyner's Message From The Nile, featuring the oud (Egyptian lute), voice and tar (frame drum) of world-renowned Nubian master Hamza El Din. Or a tribute to the late basketball legend Wilt Chamberlain that dances to the beat of African talking drums. This is the spirit that permeates the music of Night Harvest (Global Fusion Music) by San Francisco Bay Area multipercussionist Ian Dogole. Merging myriad elements of Jazz with multi-ethnic colors and flavors, Night Harvest is an adventurous aural journey, not constrained by preexisting formulae.
