|Dogs Outside is Todd's debut record, made entirely in 10 hours the day before he moved north from Los Angeles. It is an electrifying CD, featuring some of the best recorded playing of bandmates Peter Epstein, Justin Morell, and Mark and Alan Ferber. Most pieces on the record are unedited first takes.
"...Super high-energy...HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! The best jazz listen you'll have in 2000!" - Improvijazzation Nation
"...These works run the gamut from being loosely based motifs that traverse circuitous paths in concert with brooding interplay marked by soaring choruses and a commanding group sound. No doubt, Dogs Outside comes as a welcome surprise. * * * * (4 out of 5 stars)." - AllAboutJazz.com
