Snarky Puppy – Shofukan (We Like It Here)
Semi-frequent visitors to Vodka are Snarky Puppy, who play a very special combination of mostly jazz with pop styling thrown in that is simply wonderful, are back. Here from their latest long-player, We Like It Here, (February 2014) is the wonderful Latin and rhythm and blues flavored Shofukan.
I encourage you to visit other Snarky Puppy tracks on Vodka; The track that got things started for me, Thing Of Gold and the more recent Amour T’es Là, from the wonderful Family Dinner – Volume 1 set.
While all Snarky Puppy music is available digitally, I have to recommend that you purchase the CD/DVD combo pack which includes a digital download. Watching the videos gives you a sense of this amazing band’s size and scope of talent. It is the absolute best way to experience the band, unless you are lucky enough to see them live. Purchase their music on their bandcamp.com site, or see other links in the first two posts.
