Listen To “Big, Rich And Funky” New Snarky Puppy Album Via NPR Music
NPR Music is premiering Snarky Puppy’s latest album Culcha Vulcha, out April 29 on GroundUP Music/Universal Music Classics, via their First Listen series. Listen to the album here.
As NPR says, “to the extent that Snarky Puppy has a core sonic idea, it's an intricate melody over a multifaceted groove, as generated by multiple horn players, multiple guitarists, multiple keyboardists and multiple percussionists. It gathers ideas openly and avidly from all over the world and throughout the Afro-American popular music continuum, blending freely. Few might have predicted that such a maximalist, stylistically unbound ensemble — an instrumental funk band on the precipice between intricate and noodly — could sustain itself beyond personal passion. Yet League and the band have grown a rabid fan base of depth and diversity: young and old, jazz people and laypeople, black, white, neither.”
Snarky Puppy will kick off the North American portion of their 2016 world tour this week at the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival. A full list of tour dates can be found here.
