Snarky Puppy

+ House Of Waters

Vibrant, no overdubs jazz, global, funk fusion!?

The very first jazz album was released 100 years ago: The Original Dixieland Jass Band with ‘Livery Stable Blues’. That’s why AB will be paying extra attention to jazz for a year. From contemporary classics to musical troublemakers who are inspired by jazz, to the latest incredibly headstrong jazz generation from local soil.

Snarky Puppy is a very frisky, capable jazz-fusion collective with Brooklyn NYC USA as base of operations. A fixed core of 13 people at the moment, and already welcome here in the ABClub, the Jazz Marathon, then a full and vibrating ABFlex in October 2015.

They already have 10 CDs to their name, just recently we had Family Dinner Vol 2: yet another 'wildcard' collaboration with jazz musicians, of course, but also with David Crosby, Susana Baca, Salif Keita, Laura Mvula... !

Now we also have the Culcha Vulcha CD, not recorded live with cameras in the studio this time, but more serenely 'in nature’ and yet still with possible overdubs.

Always unpredictably playful (like a young puppy), and these remain the most accurate descriptors live: 'eclectic... unclassifiable...free-wheeling... wide -ranging...'

fantastisch feestje - volgende keer ben ik er weer bij!
Fa-bu-leus concert ! Top band, geweldige sound !
Excellent concert, précision et intensité étaient au rendez-vous, comme toujours avec les Snarky Puppy. La première partie fut une très bonne découverte...
Énorme concert, quelle technique, quelle qualité. J'ai passé un super moment, tout était au top: première partie, performance du groupe, qualité du son ...
A mix of jazz (Coltrane), funk (Thundercat), rock(Pink Floyd), ect...They know there music-history... Great concert...but sometime too loud. Remarkable in one of the songs they stopped 3x and then the SILENCE-the contrast was huge!

House of Waters = :O :O :O
Super Avond! House of Waters was een fantastische ontdekking! Snarky... Voor mij was het eerste keer live.... Geniaal. Jammer dat Cory H er niet bij was. Had al zoveel van deze gehoord... Merci
Eerst lekker eten in Ab-Restaurant. House Of Waters was een te gek voorprogramma. Zo blij eindelijk Snarky Puppy Live aan het werk te kunnen zien. Te gekke muzikale reis. Super visuals.
Great concert but the sound could have been better... it was too loud
House of Waters started out great! Snarky Puppy was, again, extremely satisfying. Loved the energy, melodic power and enthusiasm. Standing very close to the stage, the band looked a bit tired... but that didn't interfere with their expression of musical beauty in both recent and less recent songs. Thanks AB for facilitating all this!
Geweldig concert uitgelaten sfeer perfect om een dinsdag mee af te ronden
