Bright Dog Red - Somethin’ Comes Along - with TWO HOURS of music, this is the most generous helping of skronk-hop you’ll see this year, DIG IN (Ropeadope)
Bright Dog Red (BDR), an improvising collective from Albany, New York, will release Somethin’ Comes Along, a double album, on September 25, 2020. Somethin’ Comes Along, marks the ensemble’s third, and most ambitious, release for Ropeadope, the influential Philadelphia area music, clothing, and culture imprint.
The collective’s two previous Ropeadope releases, 2019’s How’s by You? and 2018’s Means to the Ends, have at once bemused and beguiled critics, fans, and music industry observers. Louis Marks, CEO of Ropeadope explains:
“Bright Dog Red is perhaps the most unique band to grace the halls of Ropeadope, and that’s quite an accomplishment. Bright Dog Red hits the stage without charts or set list – they simply start playing and improvise, taking cues from each other and from the audience and room. It’s adventurous, and due to the skill and rapport of the players, surprisingly cohesive.”
Somethin’ Comes Along follows in that vein. The double album features the band’s “boundary-defying music” (Modern Drummer). Described as “divine madness” (Nippertown), “smokin’ and spaced out” (Jay Hunter), BDR’s style has earned the group a reputation as “sonic groundbreakers” (NuJazz Sounds).
Founded by drummer Joe Pignato, BDR is comprised of a rotating cast of players. In addition to Pignato, Somethin’ Comes Along features Eric Person (sopranino, soprano, and alto saxes, flute, kalimba), Mike LaBombard (tenor sax, effects), Tyreek Jackson (guitar, electric bass), Cody Davies (sounds, electronics), Anthony Berman (acoustic bass), and Matt Coonan (poetry, freestyling, voice).
