As Artist in Residence bassist Michael League will bring one of his varied projects to North Sea Jazz each festival day. His most populair en best-known band is Snarky Puppy. This contemporary jazz rock and funk band has shot up like a rocket over the past years and performs for dedicated audiences in sold-out clubs. In 2013 Snarky Puppy recorded the album We Like It Here Live in Kytopia studios in The Netherlands and it landed the number-one spot on the iTunes Jazz Charts instantly. Together with the Metropole Orkest the group made the successful record Sylva and won a Grammy with it. For this reason, League was more than happy to collaborate with the Dutch major league orchestra again. This performance will be led by conductor Jules Buckley. For the occasion, League will write new arrangements of the Snarky Puppy repertoire.
