Live Vinyl Record Release

Surprise! We have a new record coming out BEFORE our new record. In 2017, we recorded nearly every live show we played and released them on We picked our 17 favorite tracks from 17 cities around the world, now available as a very special, limited edition, 4-LP vinyl release. With so much new music coming down the pipe next year with our new-new record and the band entering a new chapter in its story, I feel like this is a great snapshot of where we were in a very special moment in time. Available in US and EU stores. Dig in.

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.
