Their groove is addictive, their compositions created with the greatest of care, the soloists inspired and their performances passionate, all this in a festive and generous atmosphere. A concert by the Brooklyn collective «Snarky Puppy» is quite an experience: «You get a real kick out of it from the very first minute, but without knowing what kind of music you’re listening to. Jazz? Funk? Rock? Pop? Soul? Jazz-rock? Jazz-funk? It’s all that rolled into one, performed with a conviction that could move mountains,» enthuses Frédéric Goaty (Jazzmag). Those snarky puppies are indeed not to be missed, drawing both fans and discerning music lovers into a masterful live performance, midway between composition and improvisation.
Awarded a Grammy in 2013 for the best R&B performance, then again in 2015 and 2016 for the best contemporary instrumental album, this vital musical axis carried by bassist Michael League succeeds effortlessly with its bursts of exhilarating brass instruments in defining the rules of the game: permanent renewal of its members, stage culture as its preferred place for creation, explosion of the usual stylistic boundaries in favour of an incongruous and decompartmentalised mixture of funk, jazz and soul. After having performed with Erykah Badu, Snoop Dogg, Justin Timberlake, but also Marcus Miller, here they are again on the legendary «Jazz à Juan» stage, «for your brain and body» as their motto claims!
