about

Christmas Tune (10:10)
Solos by Max Forster (trumpet) and Mike Murray (guitar)

Far from being a typical Holiday Season release, "Christmas tune" is a commentary on some of the defining characteristics of modern commercial Christmas music, much of which are written in major keys, and are drenched in so much saccharin that it red-lines the "happy-happy" meter. Instead, bandleader Nick Maclean's composition presents an antithesis to that Holiday writing approach -- an eclectic and multifaceted exploration of the full spectrum of human emotion.

ABOUT SNAGGLE

Often described as Canada’s answer to Snarky Puppy, Snaggle combines influences from jazz, rock, metal, classical and everything else they can get their hands on to create their own brash and infectious brand of hard funk. With a sound ranging from Miles Davis to Rage Against the Machine, Snaggle features a repertoire of exciting, dynamic and highly diverse original material which is garnering them more and more attention both at home and abroad. This all-star line up of players, including the fastest drummer in world, are among some of the best 20-somethings on the scene and represent the next generation of irreverent, boundary pushing Canadian players and composers. Snaggle is an artist on the roster of the award winning record label Browntasauras Records. For more information go to www.SnaggleMusic.com
