George Clinton is not only a great eccentric but also the principal architect of P-Funk, a cocktail of funk, rock, and psychedelic sound effects. Jazz brass sounds meet bubbling polyrhythms accompanied by driving bass wrapped around melodic vocals.
Snarky Puppy | Marc Ribot & The Young Philadelphians
Mon 11.07. at 20.30
Since their founding in 2004, Snarky Puppy has made a name for infusing new energy into the genre of jazz-funk fusion music. The group is led by bassist and composer Michael League, who has been recognized with a Grammy.
Marc Ribot (b. 1954) is a savvy guitar wizard who plays and combines jazz, son, soul and noise. Tom Waits is an admirer of his unconventional talents as is The Black Keys and Elvis Costello. He’ll be coming to this year’s Vienna Jazz Fest with his group Young Philadelphians.
