May 16, 2017 - Lille, France (mp3)
Snarky Puppy live recording from their show on May 16, 2017 at L'Aeronef in Lille, France.
FROM MICHAEL LEAGUE:
Four fresh faces for the first French gig of the tour (Nate, Zach, Bobby, and Bob). This is the third, and last, lineup of the 10-week run. Normally it takes a few days for things to click when the personnel changes, but things feel good right away. GØ is funky (largely thanks to Bobby’s distorted clav playing) with an FX trumpet solo from Maz to start things off. Justin toys with the bassline as a motif on Rhodes. Bob finishes it out on guitar. Beep Box gets a Moog solo from outer space (care of Bobby). Zach takes a violin solo on Grown Folks, then Bob at the end. Bullock takes his time on Kite. You can really feel the difference with the new rhythm section on this one. Justin solos over the outro on Rhodes. Maz wah-wahs on Tarova. Young Stuff gets a funky solo from Bullock, then a pretty epic organ/Moog adventure with Bobby. Highlight of the set. Nate keeps the energy up on Tio Macaco. Zach really takes his time on Lingus to close out the set. What About Me? is fast. Really fast. Bob gets spacey before the band reenters. Larnell burns through the solo vamp on top of Justin’s Moog.
