Snarky Puppy live recording from their show on May 31, 2017 at Muffatwerk in Munich, Germany.
FROM MICHAEL LEAGUE:
Sold-out show for about 1500 in a very hot Bavarian club. Great audience energy throughout the night. First time ever starting with Gemini, which I really liked. It’s finally found its groove on this tour. Zach weaves through the modulations on violin. Tarova feels great. A relatively short version with Maz taking the solo on effected trumpet. Right into GØ. Bullock howls on the first solo. Justin and the band hint at some Headhunters on the Rhodes solo. Bob takes it out on guitar. Bobby takes the feature on Moog for Thing of Gold. Justin transitions directly into 34 Klezma on Rhodes. The crowd nails 3 over 4 clapping patterns under a pizz solo from Zach. He moves to the bow and stretches. Beep Box is all Bobby. He alternates between Moog and organ over the outro (sometimes both at once), takes it on his own for a bit, then the band comes in hard. My favorite part of the whole night. Nate weaves a thread into Tio Macaco. He and Larnell bring some new calls in just before the finale. Big Ugly finds its way back in for the first time in a while. Bullock takes the first solo left. Bob takes two on guitar and freaks things out with delays to close out the set. What About Me? gets a throwback from Justin, as he pushes the band into a tune from the early days of the band, Intelligent Design. He and Larnell weave back into the song and Larnell trashes the drum solo. A really great night showing this lineup’s comfort and ease on stage together.
