Reverb.com: Bass Pedal Tricks with Michael League

To Michael League, bassist and de facto leader of the massive collective of musicians known as Snarky Puppy, experimenting with tone is a lot less about what you can do and a lot more about what you should do.

A question League often asks himself is, “Is this the most musically appropriate thing?”

About

Brooklyn, NYC.

Jazz + Funk + World + Soul + Pop

Snarky Puppy is truly a different kind of musical animal.

The once Texan, now New York-based quasi-collective Snarky Puppy has gone from the best-kept secret to one of the most respected names in instrumental music. Although still "underground" in many respects, the band earned its first Grammy Award in early 2014 (for Best R&B Performance) and has earned high praise from critical stalwarts like the BBC, Village Voice, The Guardian, New York Times, and Washington Post, as well as the world’s most respected musicians, from Pat Metheny to Prince. Their most recent album, a collaboration with the Dutch large ensemble Metropole Orkest called Sylva, topped Billboard Jazz, Billboard Contemporary Jazz, Billboard Heatseeker, and iTunes Jazz charts. The band has always used live performance as its chief form of evangelism, and over the last 8 years has maintained a more intense tour schedule than almost any band in the idiom with over 1,200 performances.
