( Jazz Times) "there’s a great immediacy to these grooves, and plenty of thrilling solos, starting with Bobby Sparks’ guitar-like clavinet outing on the opening, aptly titled “Chonks,” its electro-funk grit countered by a peppy trumpet/flugelhorn line.

 And then in swerves “Bigly Strictness,” its pulsating eighth-note rhythms topped by a proggish melody and, later, zoning in on Middle Eastern and African percussion and textures borrowed in part from Turkish darbuka virtuoso Misirli Ahmet, a recent major influence on League. The tour of world rhythms continues with League’s “Xavi,” which he based on a Moroccan chaabi groove. It’s a swirling maelstrom of percussion, flutes, guitars, keyboards, violin, and trumpets that wouldn’t be out of place on the soundtrack of a globe-hopping James Bond film.

 Bass clarinet signals the start of “Coven,” which leans into jazz fusion, and the hip-hop rhythms of “Bling Bling” feed a chill-lounge vibe. “Bad Kids to the Back” hews closer to familiar Snarky Puppy jazz-funk, blasted open with Bob Reynolds’ darting tenor solo, and draws to a close with a fierce drum battle. It’s the feelgood pick of the LP

 Snarky Puppy is a Brooklyn, New York-based instrumental fusion band led by Grammy Award-winning bassist, composer and producer Michael League. Formed in Denton, Texas in 2004, the band features a collective of nearly 40 musicians, referred to as "The Fam" on their recordings and tours. The musicians perform on a variety of instruments including guitars, pianos, keyboards, woodwinds, brass, percussion and strings. Many of the current and former band members were once students at the University of North Texas."
