RDL+, conceived and developed its “Bay Area Bridges” series in a 4-year residency at Studio Grand in Oakland as an evolving encounter with guests artists focused on original composition and collaboration, spanning jazz, classical and many other influences, moving from solo to trio and up to large ensemble based on the individual and collective artistic inspiration of the musicians. Tonight, they perform with special guests to celebrate that project and the resultant, newly released five-CD set.
â€œWe are interested in being creative and full musicians, both on on our own and as a group. When we come together, it feels right; seamless, exhilarating and meaningful all at once.”
Beginning in October 2015, RDL+ led its monthly Bay Area Bridges series at Studio Grand in Oakland to develop music which celebrated the Bay Area, with Oakland as its hub, bringing together interesting and ground-breaking voices that they knew needed to be heard and reckoned with. Shows included music written and presented by RDL+ as well as other innovative artists, aiming to break new ground in modern music. Guests included vocalist Tiffany Austin, playwright/director Rebecca Martin, Amaranth String Quartet and others.
In 2016, RDL+ released a trio album, “Pacific Voyage,” featuring Doug Lee, Steve Weems, and Ruthie Dineen. This release was followed by a tour in Spain.Â Now, RDL+ is celebrating the release of a five album compilation of the music from the Bay Area Bridge Series.
