Former BP cover artist Michael League and Snarky Puppy return to the Bay Area with a fresh CD and an opening act not to be missed. League graced the cover of BP’s August 2014 issue, and his ensemble is one of the hottest improvisational acts on the modern jazz scene. Snarky Puppy’s rotating lineup features musicians that also perform with stars Erykah Badu, Marcus Miller, Justin Timberlake, Roy Hargrove, Snoop Dogg, and John Mayer. The Grammy-winning band is supporting its brand new CD, Sylva—a concert collaboration with Utrecht’s Metropole Orkest that debuted at the top of the iTunes Jazz Chart.
Opener Kamasi Washington got a great review in BP’s August issue for his “pivotal jazz album,” The Epic, featuring Thundercat and upright specialist Miles Mosley. Read Jon D’Auria’s comprehensive thoughts here.
Mosley will be on bass at the Warfield on September 19, making the evening a double dose of bass greatness.
Come see why BP Editor Chris Jisi calls Michael League, “A true bass hero for the New Millennium,” and dig Miles Mosley’s envelope-pushing upright at the outset of the evening. Any low end aficionado planning to be in the San Francisco Bay Area in September should make the scene at the gorgeous Warfield Theatre on Market Street on Saturday, the 19th.
