kör (concert): Snarky Puppy
After the sound check, Bob joined us for a lovely dinner at Cirkus, apparently a fairly prominent concert and show venue in quite a lovely old building. Of course Elizabeth liked the location- across the street from Gröna Lund (the amusement park). Menus with unusual ingredients stretch our Swedish- I can't quite remember the Swedish word for Jerusalem artichoke.
We were then able to poke around a bit back stage. Not quite as glamorous as the front, but fun to see. A big tour like this is always a production: large tour buses, tons of musical equipment, and quite a concert schedule as they work their way across Europe (Bob is joining the tour for the next month).
If you happen to be able to catch a concert, well worth seeing... We weren't quite sure what to expect but the music was a really interesting blend of a heck of a lot of instruments- so cool to hear how they wove them together and made different sounds. I can't remotely do it justice describing it. Lots of youtube videos out there about it.
The description in Swedish: Snarky Puppy är det Brooklyn-baserade jazzkollektivet ledda av Michael League som fått TRE Grammy Awards genom åren. League själv beskriver ensemblen så här: "a pop band that improvises a lot, without vocals". Aktuella med nya albumet "Immigrance" är det i höst dags för magisk stämning på Cirkus i Stockholm - den 23 oktober!
