    I pity the sound engineer responsible for setting up & balancing the mic’s on this gig… that’s some ensemble... !

    Absolute pure class through & through, you can’t appreciate the music fully until you see it performed. That is one tight mother of a set. 'Trinity' and 'Cilroy' are beyond next level, utterly ridiculous sounds, atmos & musicianship.

    The real deal, every player. These guys are truly blessed, possibly one of the tightest bands performing today.

    80’s fusion taken to new heights, the golden age of jazz BRAVELY CONTINUES 🎷

      Great quality pressing. All the Snarky puppy records I have are great pressings. Whisper quiet, no sibilance, well mastered.

        Just received my vinyl from Music Maker Europe. The title is spelled correctly on the spine in my case.
