Named after a French expression for the moment of snarling restraint before two dogs attack each other, Marc Ribot's post-hyphenate power trio sounds like the carnage that ensues next. With a style that might be described as Jersey-Dada, the mercurial guitarist built a reputation walking a tightrope of post-modern, genre-bending punk, Latin, and free jazz hybrids, but this band moves beyond the winking nods to a place of head-banging mayhem where Dave Brubeck and Jim Morrison meet for a slugfest and both end up on the floor. Is it jazz? Rock? Avant-noise? Probably best to check all genre preconceptions at the door. With Jim Campilongo and Wolf.
