Snarky Puppy live recording from their show on June 2, 2017 at Elbjazzfest in Hamburg, Germany.
FROM MICHAEL LEAGUE:
Last show of the German leg. Festival for a few thousand people in the open air on a cool night in the shipyards of Hamburg. Only 60 minutes allowed on stage = power set. Shorter solos, succinct ideas. Bullock invokes Joshua Redman (who just came off stage) on Grown Folks. Bob takes it out. Beep Box gets a solo from Maz. Boom takes an album-length solo on Tarova, and Nate takes the outro vamp on percussion. Bobby drops one of the best grooves of the tour during his solo on What About Me? Larnell takes a quick one on the outro. Shofukan gets solos from Justin and the percussion section. Zach rips on Lingus. Bobby closes things out with Sleeper. A sloppy, fun outdoor set.
