Perhaps Winogrond is best known as a rock drummer, most notably with Davie Allan & the Arrows, but on his debut solo jazz LP, he sounds like an old master who built his reputation filling in at the Blue Note or the Village Vanguard. Together with Jack Chandler on saxophones and flute and Arlan Schierbaum on piano and echoplex, Winogrond weaves a surreal tapestry of gritty urban jazz with a psychedelic twist. These songs provide the soundtrack to dark back alleys, where Raymond Chandler protagonists step into scenes from William Burroughs without batting an eyelash. Allan and DJ Bonebrake from X appear on the closing “Imhotep,” which merges Hawkwind with Jack Johnson-era Miles Davis into a soaring spacerock jazz continuum.

Pictures at an Existentialism is a great start to what should be an exciting career transition for David Winogrond. The man has ambition to go along with his prodigious musical talent. As he continues into his fifth decade of drumming, he continues to inspire and amaze. Jazz stations such as KCSM in San Mateo still do weekly charts, and if there is justice left in this world, Pictures would appear there.
