May 22, 2017 - Frankfurt, Germany (mp3)

Snarky Puppy live recording from their show on May 22, 2017 at Batschkapp in Frankfurt, Germany.


First German gig of the tour. Old-school, cavernous rock and roll room with about 1300 people. Pretty dark setlist with direct transitions between almost every song. has solos from Bullock on effected tenor, Justin on Rhodes, and Bob on guitar. Beep Box feels great. Maz solos over the outro vamp. First time ever having a violin on Outlier. Zach rips through the solo section. Justin eases Thing of Gold in on Rhodes. First time playing it with this lineup. Bobby takes the lead and Maz blows over the bridge. Tarova’s next. Bobby plays the melody as far back as it could possibly go without bumping into the last song. Bob solos on guitar. Grown Folks gets solos from Bullock in the middle and Zach on the outro. Nate does a tour of tempos to set up Tio Macaco. He and Larnell take a (relatively) short duo solo to close it out. Justin takes a trumpet solo on Young Stuff. Bobby gets spiritual on organ. Shofukan is fast- very fast. Zach takes the solo on violin. Bobby owns Sleeper for the encore. A fluid set with great crowd energy.
