Artist: Snarky Puppy
Song: What about me?
Snarky Puppy’s leader, Michael League, was interviewed and written about in the 2010 book release “The New Face of Jazz” by Cicily Janus. The author cites League’s self-termed music as “jafunkadansion” for its genre-bending qualities of instrumental and dance music. Cicily Janus also comments the “group Snarky Puppy is one of the most inventive in sound and funk since Maynard Ferguson’s fusion years.”
In this particular song, we can appreciate the mindblowing drumming skills by Larnell Lewis as well as an amazing electric guitar solo performed by the great Bob Lanzetti.
Snarky Puppy´s performance of the song “Something” with Lalah Hathaway earned them a Grammy for Best R&B Performance in 2014.
