I had the privilege of speaking on KCRW with Larry Perel to discuss all things Snarky Puppy ahead of our show in Santa Barbara, CA. If you’ve ever been curious about how this band of 9-20+ rotating players tours, composes & records music, and operates creatively, you’ll enjoy listening to this conversation.
“it’s a composer’s dream to have all these incredible musicians and that array of instruments at your disposal, but with the caveat that every single person in that group is functioning like a producer, meaning you’re producing the music in real time,” said Bob Reynolds, who plays saxophone in Snarky Puppy. “You’re a listener first, a player second. Everyone is listening to make the song the best it can be every time. And everyone is checking their ego at the door. It just becomes one unit.”
