Default Robert "Sput" Searight

I recently found out about this band called Snarky Puppy and Robert "Sput" Searight. Their stuff is pretty good.

It reminded me a bit of a norwegian group called Jaga Jazzist (it's norwegian for "hunted jazzplayer/jazzer"), but personally I like Jaga Jazzist better =) But Snarky Puppy grooved awesome, nonetheless :D

I've come across Jaga Jazzist before. I don't have any of their albums, but The Stix is on my list of albums to buy.

Here is another track by Snarky Puppy. I like the bass and organ solos in this one.

I think Snarky Puppy is kinda of a mix of STS9, Lotus, and Soulive. Another good band to check out is Pnuma Trio. They have a bunch of stuff that you can get for free from the internet archives.

I've really gotten in Jaga Jazzist over the past 2 weeks. I picked up The Stix and A Livingroom Hush. Any other suggestions?

Personally I think "What We Must" and "One Armed Bandit" are their best albums =) The tracks Oslo Skyline
and All I Know Is Tonight have sort of become the hits from What We Must and from the One Armed Bandit
album, I really like Bananfluer Overalt (which literally means Fruit Flies/Vinegar Flies Everywhere) and
Music! Dance! Drama! (but this track is SO much more awesome live :p )
