Bright Dog Red returns to ShapeShifter Lab to celebrate In Vivo, a live album recorded at the venue and recently released on Ropeadope Records.
The ensemble will mark the occasion by performing a set of “thoroughly improvised” music (Downbeat). Chris Sampson of the Joy Sounds Podcast explains, “Bright Dog Red is making it up as they go along, literally. All of their music is created in the moment, through free improvisation.”
Glide Magazine describes BDR’s commitment to this approach, “much is made about improvisation or playing in the moment. While some bands pay casual reference to those phrases, Bright Dog Red makes it their mantra.”
“Starting as a jazz-meets-hip-hop jam band with a loosely-defined membership, Bright Dog Red has become a fixture on the NYC jazz and improvisation scene” (Jazz Journal). Increasingly recognized for “improvisation that defies categorization” (Dan Ouellette), BDR has garnered comparisons to “Mahavishnu Orchestra meets Digable Planets” (Paul Schulman), “Romantic Warrior era Return to Forever” (Rimas e Batidas), and “electronic Ahmad Jamal,” (Don Lucoff), as well as to other psychedelic, jazz fusion, and hip hop luminaries.
