Snarky Puppy rocked the Paramount at Oakland last night. I didn't catch the names of the keyboard guys but both of them were great. Stage Right played a great fuzz wah whammy-bar(!) solo on a *clavinet* but unfortunately over-used the sound and technique at times when, you know, a crunchy clavinet would have done just fine.
Lots of new material, all good stuff. Recommended.
It's amazing he could do that on the King Korg, since so many around here find the action horrible
And even more amazing that he can do that section with the two-hand unison lines on the King Korg and a weighted Kronos. This is why I long ago focused my energy on songwriting...no way I'm ever going to be in that league as a player (or even in the league right below that.) But I have a chance of occasionally writing a decent song

The example in the beginning of this thread reminds me a bit of stuff I did in the 90s with a (part of) a Jazz combo, somewhere there should even be video of that. I don't like these new sounds even though there should have been so much progress, it sounds like mud most the time, without much expression.
