In other news our bandleader and Browntasauras comrades in the Nick Maclean Quartet – a HARD SWINGING Herbie Hancock-influenced modern jazz group – are about to head out on a CD Release tour to Kingston (Thr-Feb-15), Montreal (Fri-Feb-16), Ottawa (Sat-Feb-17), and Cobourg (Sun-Feb-18) to celebrate the release of their hot new disk RITES OF ASCENSION! If that sounds like something you’re into make sure to check out the full details here!
==============
THE LONG SLOG
“The music of Snaggle, a fruitful sextet based in Toronto, translates into mature compositions and stupendous executions. The members of the band, virtuosos in their respective instruments, resort to a laudable sense of unity and superior taste to creatively orchestrate the nine pieces of The Long Slog, their sophomore feature album… In a certain moment they’re confronting Miles Davis with Medeski Martin & Wood; in the other, you may find the Red Hot Chili Peppers colliding with Incognito or Mahavishnu Orchestra.”
– Filipe Freitas – Jazz Trail (New York, USA)
