  • Mark Lettieri On Playing Life, Looping & His Travel Pedalboard – That Pedal Show

    1:09

    In this episode we are delighted to welcome the wonderful Mark Lettieri to the show! Mark is highly loved and respected musician based in Fort Worth, Texas, who has built a stellar reputation via his work in Snarky Puppy, Fearless Flyers and his own solo work.

    We met Mark back in January at the NAMM show and fixed a plan for him to drop into the TPS studio on his next trip to Europe. Thusly, he stepped off a plane from Dallas and into a car to Somerset!
    We talk a little bit about Mark’s background in music, his uncanny ability for groove and rhythm and of course the pedalboard he flies with. Plus a little cameo from Joey Landreth at the end - yep he was here that day too. Quite the day!

    For everything Mark Lettieri including his current tour dates, please check out:

  • How Mark Lettieri uses the J Rockett Melody with the J Rockett Dude

    1:47

    At least I think....In a video I've seen him stacking the Dude into the J Rockett Melody with these settings - it's not something I'd tried before, but this configuration is obviously super versatile with the EQ of the Melody after the Dude! Sorry about the playing.

    Pedals are stacked in front of my Line 6 HX Stomp.

    BIO

    Saxophonist Bob Reynolds is an in-demand jazz performer, educator, and sideman, as well as a regular member of the Grammy Award-winning band Snarky Puppy. Born in Morristown, New Jersey in 1977, Reynolds grew up in Jacksonville, Florida, where he first started playing saxophone at age 13. Although he listened to a range of music as a kid, by his late teens he was a dedicated jazz student. After high school he honed his skills at Boston's Berklee College of Music, where he mentored with George Garzone, Hal Crook, and others. As a leader, he debuted with 2000's The Bob Reynolds Quartet, followed by 2006's Can't Wait for Perfect. That same year, he joined fellow Berklee alum John Mayer's band and spent the next five years with the pop star, touring and appearing on such albums as 2008's Where the Light Is and 2009's Battle Studies.

    In 2013, he returned to his solo work with Somewhere in Between, which reached number one on digital jazz charts. He then made his Snarky Puppy debut appearing on the genre-bending group's 2014 effort, We Like It Here. Two years later he was back with Snarky Puppy for the Grammy Award-winning Culcha Vulcha. In 2017, Reynolds delivered the EP Guitar Band, which featured appearances from Kneebody bassist Kaveh Rastegar as well as fellow Snarky Puppy members Robert Sput Searight (drums) and Mark Lettieri (guitar). ~ Matt Collar

    Common and Kind was founded in June 2016. On the morning of the 24th of June, motivated by the impact of the EU referendum, developments in the USA and worldwide, a social media post called upon people to respond to division by demonstrating the power of music to bring communities together in positive collaboration. The response was phenomenal. Thousands of people, from pop and classical singers, musical theatre, folk and opera stars to chamber choirs and community choirs came forward, as well as orchestral players, concert soloists, jazz musicians and many more across the world.

    To channel the offerings of so many, our founder wrote Human Kind. Including quotations from John Donne (‘No man’s an island’) and Jo Cox (‘More in common’), the song was conceived to be adaptable for a wide range of musical styles and abilities, and to be recorded across the world, creating an international music video bringing people together from all communities, cultures, nations and musical genres.

    Human Kind was recorded live at the end of a collaborative concert held at the Union Chapel in London on Tuesday 2nd August 2016. With a huge line-up of solo artists, massed choral and orchestral forces, it was an extraordinary evening of music spanning genres and crossing borders. Guest artists included Cassidy Janson, star of Beautiful – The Carole King Musical, mezzo soprano Sarah Connolly, guitarist Mark Lettieri of multiple Grammy winners Snarky Puppy, chart-topping, genre-defying singer Sarah Jane Morris and Bengali folk star Saida Tani. The conductor was James Burton with the orchestra led by Britten Sinfonia principal Thomas Gould, featuring also in trio with jazz piano star Andrew McCormack and percussion virtuoso Bernhard Schimpelsberger. Journalist, author and environmentalist George Monbiot premiered his collaboration with folk singer Ewan McClennan. The evening was presented by legendary journalist and broadcaster Robin Lustig, former anchor of BBC Radio 4’s The World Tonight.

    Since the concert, choirs and soloists from across the world have sent in their recordings of Human Kind. They include Pihcintu, a choir combining refugees from Cambodia, China, Congo, El Salvador, Egypt, Kazakhstan, Kenya, Lebanon, Saudi Arabia, Somalia, Sudan, Uganda, Vietnam, West Indies, and Zambia, choirs from Vietnam, Northern Ireland, Scotland, India, Malaysia, the UK and USA. The video single also features Sarah Connolly, Jonathan Hoard, Saida Tani and nine members of Snarky Puppy.

    Human Kind will be released worldwide in Spring 2017, with all proceeds of online sales being donated to Musicians without Borders, Music Action International and Amnesty International.

    LONGER BIO

    Saxophonist Bob Reynolds is an in-demand jazz performer, educator, and sideman, as well as a regular member of the Grammy Award-winning band Snarky Puppy. Born in Morristown, New Jersey in 1977, Reynolds grew up in Jacksonville, Florida, where he first started playing saxophone at age 13. Although he listened to a range of music as a kid, by his late teens he was a dedicated jazz student. After high school he honed his skills at Boston's Berklee College of Music, where he mentored with George Garzone, Hal Crook, and others. As a leader, he debuted with 2000's The Bob Reynolds Quartet, followed by 2006's Can't Wait for Perfect. That same year, he joined fellow Berklee alum John Mayer's band and spent the next five years with the pop star, touring and appearing on such albums as 2008's Where the Light Is and 2009's Battle Studies.

    In 2013, he returned to his solo work with Somewhere in Between, which reached number one on digital jazz charts. He then made his Snarky Puppy debut appearing on the genre-bending group's 2014 effort, We Like It Here. Two years later he was back with Snarky Puppy for the Grammy Award-winning Culcha Vulcha. In 2017, Reynolds delivered the EP Guitar Band, which featured appearances from Kneebody bassist Kaveh Rastegar as well as fellow Snarky Puppy members Robert Sput Searight (drums) and Mark Lettieri (guitar). ~ Matt Collar
