Snarky Puppy- Outlier.

This week’s Snarky Puppy clip is the other “harder” track off the new album, with a mind-boggling sax solo and some superheated dynamics from the band in the closing stages. This was the opener when we saw the band live last year- about a month after this recording was made- and it was even more extreme by then, with the sax distorted electronically over a wall of sound, and abrupt rhythm changes.

Check groundUPmusicNYC weekly for the other clips off the album, and if you like it please buy via the bands own website at http://snarkypuppy.ropeadope.com/album/we-like-it-here.

  1. I did listen, though very accomplished, it’s probably not for me. Reminded me slightly of Pat Metheny and / or Weather Report, but that’s probably because my knowledge of jazz is very limited!

  2. Cheers people. Weather Report are a good match, There’s debate among jazz purists about whether SP even belong in the genre, but I’d say their mix of big band precision with funk, rock, electronic and a variety of world music influences is certainly in the right spirit. Can appreciate though that they are an acquired taste if you’re not a habitual listener to fusion/jazz rock styles.
