I had only seen one clip of them before the newest issue of Bass Player. All I can say is Michael League is a great voice on the instrument and a great bassist composer in the tradition of Charles Mingus. When I read in BP the quote from League that he did not have great chops, I laughed because he wouldn't have gotten through North Texas or been introduced to Kirk Franklin's circle of players if he weren't a serious player. I'm not of a huge fan of the octave pedal for so many solos, but I respect his concept. I am officially a Michael League and Snarky Puppy fan.
