Snarky Puppy: I Asked

March 1, 2018

From Caramoor’s Artistic Coordinator, Timothy Coffey:

I’ll admit it—I’m a Snarky Puppy addict. They’re ridiculously good. Picking only one song from them is actually easy because there’s no wrong choice. Listening to only one song is not easy, so if you’re reading this, and you haven’t listened to SP, a good starting point are their Family Dinner albums (volume 1 and 2). Both albums feature artists/musicians from across the globe, each taking their own turn with SP for one song. The first track off volume 2 features American singer-songwriter Becca Stevens and Väsen, a Swedish folk music band, performing Stevens’ song “I Asked”. Folk, Jazz, R&B, Funk, Soul—I’m not sure how to label this. Maybe the word “awesome” will suffice.
