January 14, 2016 at SLG Art Boutiki & Gallery in San Jose.
Both bands have enjoyed successful receoptions at Art Boutiki, and we look forward to you joining us for this one as NPP hasn’t been to San Jose since, Sept 2015.
Featuring Wally Schnalle on drums and electronics, Hristo Vitchev on guitar and Dan Robbins on bass.
“… fusion just doesn’t get any better than this. … it’s most strongly recommended that you listen to this entire sonic extravaganza with headphones on, at least for the first sitting. I give Wally & his crew a MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED”
Rotcod Zzaj, Improvijazzation.com
“Working sound bytes into delicate infusions of soul, jazz, and electronica, Schnalle nourishes an integrated field of sound that at once evokes seventies nostalgia and progressive futurism.”
Tyran Grillo, AllAboutJazz.com
“Schnalle even projects visuals on a screen during performances. Prepare to have your mind blown.”
Aaron Carnes, Metroactive
“Schnalle mixes the sound of live jazz with programmed electronica and synth from his drum set, creating a new blend of funk, jazz and electronica.”
