    Why is it whenever someone mentions an artist that was clearly progressive (yet not the Symph weenie definition of Prog) do certain people feel compelled to snort "thats not Prog" like a whiny 5th grader?

    Interesting perspective. Do you know his first two releases: "Flint" and "Swift". Many (I included) will hold those in higher esteem. I also wholeheartedly recommend his live album "Live at Union Chapel". His best tracks in an incredible performance. Head over to YT - there are a few clips from it that you can watch/listen to.

    Agreed on all counts.

That being said, they're getting a lot of the students into jazz and funk as opposed to twee piano pop or po-faced major-seventh-chord-indie, which I'm definitely okay with.
    I've seen both Jacob and Snarky live, and greatly enjoyed both shows. Kudos to both acts for finding some sort of "populist" appeal with Very Advanced musical talent and content, frankly. Both of these acts also improvise within structures--actually, they also improvise the structures themselves. Anyone bringing improvisation and advanced harmonic and rhythmic presentations to crowds these days has to be admired--plenty of "old prog bands" play the same old tired arrangments of their hits, etc., and have been doing so for years. Plus, both Snarky and Jacob involve their audiences. They're fun!

    We are fortunate to able to select from thousands of musical artists to satisfy our personal earcandy. Snarky Puppy provides yet another flavor in the buffet of beats and notes. Like 'em or not, they are skilled musicians, and they are a "thing" now, so we will just have to get use to it, or go on ignoring them.

    Sometimes warm and fuzzy sounds great with funk and snarl, and with them you get that, don't overlook the fact that the band is diverse in both music and personel, it's music they all like to create, and with that has come a fan base.
    Agreed! The up and coming players are Valeriy Stepanov from Russia & Domi Degalle from France. Domi was sponsored to come to the USA by someone from Snarky Puppy.

    Thanks for the heads up!
    The new track is fine but it seems to me there's something missing in their studio albums as opposed to their "live in the studio" records. The music somehow sounds colder, with less energy. I thought the songs from Culcha Vulcha really came to life in a live setting.
    Not just a Genesis fanboy.

    The new track sounds good to me, with all the by-now-trademark SP traits: great sounds, quality soloing, and interesting writing/arranging. I totally agree with you, though: those early live in the studio recordings were magical, especially with the video evidence of them actually pulling the stuff off. The energy of either doing new material on short rehearsal or recording things that were seriously road-tested and therefore super-tight was part of their appeal, to me. When I saw them last summer, the Culcha Vulcha material was much improved from the studio versions, and I would expect the same to be true of this new recording's compositions.

    Happy with what I have to be happy with.

    A gentleman is defined as someone who knows how to play the accordion, and doesn't.
