Snarky Puppy featuring Lalah Hathaway: Something

This is an absolutely dynamite combination. Snarky Puppy, led by bassist Michael League, recently released Family Dinner, Volume 1 with a host of guest vocalists.

Here’s the video for the song “Something,” featuring Lalah Hathaway, who delivers an absolutely stunning performance over top of the absolutely smoking band.

Starting with just vocals and a Rhodes, the track builds from a smooth groove to funky jam. League keeps things tied together with a fat pocket and a tight riff groove later in the tune. Check out the 6:19 mark where Hathaway gets the whole band to go nuts.
