Snarky Puppy's 5th album was recorded and filmed live in-studio in HD in front of a 40-person audience.
"It was, by far, the craziest thing we've ever done. We literally built a studio in a Brooklyn warehouse- in 3 days. Then we brought in 20 musicians and played 6 sets over 3 nights for 40 audience members each set... and it turned out better than I ever could have hoped." (Michael League)
