Since debuting in 2015, BDR has generated comparisons to “Mahavishnu Orchestra meets Digable Planets” (Paul Schulman) and to “Electric Ahmad Jamal” (Don Lucoff). ShapeShifter Lab, “a vital part of the city’s jazz ecosystem,” according to the New York Times, played no small role in BDR’s development, presenting the band in early 2016.
BDR’s return is produced by ShapeShifter + (Plus), a non profit organization that exists “to support, inspire and foster the development of improvised/composed forms of music, dance, theatre and visual arts by way of presenting the most cutting edge and forward thinking artists of our time.”
ShapeShifter Lab is located at:18 Whitwell Place
