June 6, 2017 Amsterdam, Netherlands (FLAC)

Snarky Puppy live recording from their show on June 6, 2017 at Paradiso in Amsterdam, Netherlands.

Last of two nights in Amsterdam. Sonically (for some unknown reason), this one feels a bit better than the first show. Musically, a very different one. The set starts with two old tunes. Nate eases Strawman in. Maz plays around the hits. Horns and guitar trade over the last section. Justin takes one on Rhodes during Flood. Zach takes his time on Grown Folks (and both solos). Bobby alternates between Minimoog and organ on Gemini. Bob gets weird with drums and percussion on Tarova. The band is joined by old friends Steven Brezet (Koffie) and Murc (Metropole Orkest) for a percussion solo over the outro. Binky gets a bass intro and a buzzy tenor solo from Bullock. Maz takes a really nice one on flugel. The band gets bendy on the build. The outro gets a Band of Gypsies quote. Bobby takes things to another place on What About Me? (plus a not-so-subtle 80’s reference). Justin adds some color. Larnell starts with cymbals and really takes his time on the solo. Justin adds a harmony to the bassline and Bob starts painting. One of the more interesting places this solo section has gone. On Lingus, Zach experiments with harmonic pitch shifting. The band hits a very different groove underneath him. Sleeper is the second encore. Bobby owns it. Justin eggs him on for an encore of their own. The band comes back in with a spontaneous deconstruction of the outro. Things get very strange (in a good way?).
