Snazzback

Snazzback is a Bristol-based collective, focused on creating collaborative compositions tied together through a constant stream of improvisation and an infectious looseness. They explore global music and styles such as bass music, free/jazz and hip-hop as part of their ever-expanding repertoire, infusing these elements into an electrifying set that blurs the lines between original composition, re-interpretation and pure improvisation.

Snazzback’s performances serve as an experimental soundboard for sonic collaboration, inspired by a collective love of music in all its forms. They sew their intricate arrangements together with a common thread of improvisation, traversing odd-meter landscapes and hypnotic melodies with an infectious looseness. With no two shows ever quite the same, Snazzback are sure to leave you buzzing from the energy and spontaneity that sets them apart from their peers in the UK jazz revival.
