A staple of the Bay Area Jazz scene in the 90’s and early 2000’s, trumpet and keyboardist Clyde Sutliff heads up this jazz quartet that made waves amongst a serious SF jazz scene.

"All the talk about acid jazz or new jazz, beginning roughly with the emergence of the Charlie Hunter Trio and the trademark fusion of jazz and hip-hop championed by Alphabet Soup and other young players of that scene, has subsided for now. But in its wake, Dogslyde continues to produce fresh, inventive music that melds funk, Latin, hard bop and the new jazz into a pleasing performance, something jazz listeners of all persuasions will enjoy.” –Monterey County Weekly
