Bright Dog Red (BDR), an improvising collective from Albany, New York, fuses free improvisation, electronica, jazz, hip hop, psychedelia, and noise music.
The band’s performances often feature visual artists creating work in real-time, most notably, the Jamaican American artist Michael Milton.
Since debuting in 2015, BDR has generated comparisons to ” Mahavishnu Orchestra meets Digable Planets” (Paul Schulman), “electronic Ahmad Jamal,” (Don Lucoff) and to other jazz, fusion, and hip hop luminaries.
