Funkdawgs featured on Saxophone Journal Jan/Feb 2007 issue

Greetings to all saxophonists around the world!
It's a pleasure to present this playalong cd for Saxophone Journal. Funkdawgs have a unique twist however in that all the recording process is done via the Internet and no two musicians were in the same room at the same time. This collection of tune is intended to give any level of player, from beginner to advanced, the opportunity to concentrate on their sense of timing and groove. By keeping the tunes in relatively easy keys and using pretty straight ahead chord changes, any saxophonist can have some fun playing with a dynamite rhythm section...
Inside the magazine Bob Johnson, saxophonist of Funkdawgs, explaines also the whole internet recording process used by the band in last 5 years...

"A Dawg's Life", the new CD from the Funkdawgs

For the Funkdawgs, It's always been about the mix. A virtual mix of talented jazz musicians. A unique mix of backgrounds and cultures from around the planet. An exciting of original jazz-funk material. And now the eclectic mix of a Dawg's Life.
Eight new virtual tracks created via internet wav files. Five live concert tracks from the Dawg's historic first gig at Nashville's Gibson Showcase in April, 2006. Plus a live studio track recorded during rehearsals for the concert. After five years of creating in isolation, the magical Nashville experience of finally meeting face-to-face has expanded the channels of friendship and musical exploration even further for the Dawgs.
Fresh tracks, new arrangements and passionate playing. It's easy to see how they're really livin' a dawg's life.
