Four of the songs feature Biskin (who sometimes sounds a bit like Jimmy Giuffre) in a pianoless quartet with trombonist Bruce Eidem, bassist Andy Eulau, and drummer Bruce Hall while the other 11 tunes (all Biskin originals) are played by a quintet with Eidem, trumpeter Ron Horton, bassist Ben Allison, and drummer Matt Wilson.

Andy Biskin’s effervescent quintet slams neo-Dixieland, Jimmy Giuffre-esque chamber jazz, and Raymond Scott-inspired zaniness together and still finds plenty of room for inspired improvisation and offbeat composition. Andy Biskin’s acclaimed debut album on Gunther Schuller’s GM Recordings, Dogmental is scored for the traditional New Orleans frontline of clarinet, trumpet, and trombone, and features 15 Biskin originals that pick up where Dixieland leaves off. With Ron Horton (trumpet), Bruce Eidem (trombone), Ben Allison (bass), and Matt Wilson (drums)

Andy Biskin: Dogmental by Mark Corroto, published on September 1, 2000. Biskin’s music, like that of Phillip Johnston or The Kamikaze Ground Crew, uses merriment as its foundation. Writing waltzes, marches, and polkas for jazz invokes memories of cartoons and slapstick. Like Raymond Scott, Biskin begins My Sentiments Exactly as a classical chamber piece or he runs through a waltz on Rondel. This is circus music, piano-less and at times like vintage Ornette Coleman’s two-horn frontline emulating the give and take of a New Orleans ensemble. He takes on modern cool jazz too with Off Peak and its grinning bebop swing.
