This is BIG music!

If you're not familiar with the ensemble group Snarky Puppy, prepare to be blown away. And, if you're listening with headphones (you are, aren't you?) and by the end of this piece you're not smiling from ear to ear, and wiping away tears of joy, then throw those damn cans in the trash and buy some good ones!

Back in the ye olden radio days I totally would've listened to these guys if it came on but not something I'd go out of my way to listen to I feel like their music is just missing something lol

Or alternatively, maybe you’re missing something ;- )

Have you checked out their set in London right before corona hell set in? This one is new, reminds me of 'Weather Report' https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iQ-Ytcsr06U&list=PL3JEmfwyQAQKrVp4RBXt9erqDDd6iErhZ&index=2

This is really weird, if you liked Santana and owned the Clear I'd be you, or you'd be me (wouldn't wish that on you lol). The first time I heard the pups was when I got TIDAL last year. Since then I've grabbed up everything by them I could find. I've found lots of music that I would've missed out on otherwise. TAUK is a discovery, as is Jane Monheit (you need to hear her voice) and dozens of others.

Jane is still only in her early 30's but she sings like a chanteuse of old, only with astounding technical ability. Her voice is an instrument, like a Stradivarius even. She never sounds clinical though, her singing packs an emotional wallop! You don't find many young songstresses performing standards from the early twentieth. I can't think of any ;-)

Sounds like you might also be upgrading your “years” as well? Embrace the journey, my friend!

Dude. I LOVE Snarky Puppy. Been lovin' them for a little while now.
One of my special fave albums is the Live at the 2016 New Orleans Jazz and Heritage fest. These guys just get the biggest kick out of performing and the love for their music.
I like hearing their little conversations with each other between numbers.
This kind of music just loves an excellent listening rig, REALLY loves an excellent big room stereo rig. Good, distortion free speakers are a MUST.
This is a group I want to see live someday.

Those are some really nice looking red M50x's they are wearing. I forgot I have the original black one's. I had to change the earcups and I changed it to really thick ones causing the headphones to look GIGANTIC on my head, awkward looking stage walking around with those on my head lol.
The guy with the keyboard really is getting into the music haha.

Agreed—he’s a damn "Phenom"--been playing like that since he was 4-years old!

"Live From Here"? I think that's where I first heard them too. Definitely agree about the incredible!

That drummer! Damn! Keyboard solo is awesome too, but that was 10 straight minutes of being completely blown away by the drums. I'll have to listen a few more times and pay attention to the other parts.
I certainly had a big stupid smile on my face by the end of it. Will certainly be looking into more Snarky Puppy.

The drummer is incredible--and that was just one number in the set, he keeps going like that for the whole evening! Lots more videos on Youtube to check out and you should visit their website to take a look at their complete discography (I know I'm going to end up dropping a bundle on their FLAC downloads). Anyway, glad you like them!
