Snarky Puppy live recording from their show on May 18, 2017 at L'Olympia in Paris, France.
From Michael League: Back in the legendary Olympia in Paris. Sold-out show for almost 3,000 people. Amazing vibe between the audience and band all night. Bold choice starting with Big Ugly. Maz and Bob take solos. Justin takes a Rhodes solo on Semente. Zach gets weird on Grown Folks and Bob takes it out. Maz plays on the outro to Beep Box. Tarova is super funky. Things go go-go in the solo. Bullock takes two. Nate plays over the outro vamp and Justin instigates some 90’s hip-hop. Gemini gets an organ and Moog solo from Bobby. Justin and Larnell get into heavy linear conversation on What About Me? Larnell trashes the outro. Bobby sings on Sleeper and things get churchy with him and Justin before a reprise. Justin blows on the first encore, Shofukan, then Nate and Larnell alternate between bhangra and drum n bass on the outro. The crowd sings until the band reemerges for Lingus, with Zach stretching on violin. Incredible energy from the crowd throughout. A really special night.
