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 )

Figured someone would be interested in this since there was some assorted discussion about Sput in some other threads recently, and Snarky Puppy just released a new album with an orchestra, lol–here's a partial shot of Sput's setup for the Coutances Jazz Festival 2015 taken from this video.



Definitely a 22" Vintage Sand crash-ride up on the left, 16" Extra Dry Medium Thin hats, Generation X Safari ride or crash, and some persuasion of the Vintage Pure ride on the right. I'll update this post if I find a more complete shot in the video...

Oh, and here's one of Nate Werth's setup as well. Lots of Byzance Vintage in this one.

Robert Searight is another one of my favorite drummers, he's always super accurate, powerful and so creative that it's almost embarassing if you have to play after him.
This is absolutely my favorite live video, the first part should be studied in music schools to let the students understand what's the true meaning of the word "musical" referred to a musician:

I'll never get tired to see it

These are my two favourite Sput clips.

This one is not the same as on his DW roster page. The groove here is so tight.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qNUqX6nu8KA

And this is very early Sput that I remember watching before he became a known name, where I think he was probably chopping even more technical than he is now.

That second clip is a ridiculous performance! But my ears hurt from the bright handclap samples (or whatever that sound is).
