Blue-in-Green:PODCAST #64: Joe Pignato from Bright Dog Red

Welcome to Episode #64 of the Blue-in-Green:PODCAST which sees Imran secure time with Bright Dog Red drummer and founder, Joe Pignato.

The improvisational jazz collective from Albany, New York, are set to release their third album in three years with Ropeadope Records. With their debut album, ‘Means To the Ends’ (Ropeadope Records, 2018), serving as a fascinating introduction to the band’s incomparable concoction of improvised jazz boldly mixed with elements of hip-hop and electronica, their follow-up record, ‘How’s By You?’, would come as soon as the following year. While Bright Dog Red’s debut masterfully dabbled within these different genres and styles, ‘How’s By You?’ incredibly seemed to plunge the band deeper within its own creation of psychedelic electronica but still managed to see them soar under these even more extreme conditions. 'Somethin’ Comes Along’ sees Bright Dog Red revisit the rule book once again for a two-disc album showcasing some stunning compositions brought to life by an awesome line-up of musicians.

Imran caught up with Joe Pignato to discuss the new album, releasing - and making - music during quarantine and all things Bright Dog Red.
