Snarky Puppy at the Ogden Theater

Read "Snarky Puppy at the Ogden Theater" reviewed by Geoff Anderson


Snarky Puppy Ogden Theater Denver, Colorado September 30, 2023 Originality seems to be a guiding force for Snarky Puppy. That applies not just to the type of music they play in general, but it goes all the way down to preparation of set lists. Saturday night at the Ogden Theater, band leader, bassist and spokesman for the group, Michael League went out of his way to review with the audience past gigs in Denver and ...

Snarky Puppy: Empire Central

Read "Empire Central" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi


A diciotto anni dalla nascita, gli Snarky Puppy sono tornati a Dallas —luogo d'origine della formazione— per registrare un nuovo album scegliendo l'approccio preferito: quel “live in the studio" con pubblico in sala che ha caratterizzato le loro opere migliori. Quindi otto notti alla Deep Ellum Art Company per mettere a punto 16 nuovi brani, ora pubblicati in doppio album, in triplo vinile. Il disco privilegia il ritorno ai valori musicali originari: una fusion ...

Snarky Puppy: Immigrance

Read "Immigrance" reviewed by Josh Deakin


Three years after their last release, Snarky Puppy's thirteenth studio album Immigrance makes a statement as a standard for jazz fusion that all modern artists should take note of. The opening track, “Chonks," sets the tone of the record with a fierce drum fill from Larnell Lewis which is reminiscent of reggae tones, an aesthetic which Snarky Puppy enjoy teasing on occasion. The record keeps pace as it weaves together the collection of songs which gives the illusion ...

The GroundUp Music Festival 2019

Read "The GroundUp Music Festival 2019" reviewed by Mike Jacobs


GroundUp Music Festival 2019 North Beach Bandshell, Park Stage Miami Beach, FL February 8-10, 2019 An internet acquaintance has a running post gag that she labels with #BecauseFlorida. In it she basically puts forth all of the unattractive, wacky and head-scratching reports that come out of the Sunshine State. It IS funny (and seemingly never at a loss for material) but I suspect you could easily paint many a state as a ...

Snarky Puppy al Roma Jazz Festival

Read "Snarky Puppy al Roma Jazz Festival" reviewed by Mario Calvitti


Snarky Puppy Roma Jazz Festival 2018 Cavea Auditorium 07.07.2018 Uno dei fiori all'occhiello di questa nuova edizione estiva del Roma Jazz Festival è sicuramente il concerto degli Snarky Puppy, unica data italiana nel breve tour europeo. Fin dalla loro fondazione nel 2005, il gruppo (ma sarebbe meglio definirlo un collettivo, vista la gran quantità e varietà dei musicisti che si alternano nella formazione) si è rapidamente imposto come il maggiore esponente della fusion jazzistica del ...

Snarky Puppy at the Ogden Theater

Read "Snarky Puppy at the Ogden Theater" reviewed by Geoff Anderson


Snarky Puppy Ogden Theater Denver, CO May 24, 2016 The Snarky Puppy website describes the group as a “quasi-collective." Indeed, an organization that numbers perhaps as many as three dozen doesn't really fit the traditional definition of a “band." Thirty six members? That almost sounds like an orchestra. Well, they don't all play together at the same time. It's more like a rotating cast of characters (or musicians). Their latest album, Culcha Vulcha (Ground Up ...
