Ghost-Note join us in the PBS Studio 5 Live space ahead of their Melbourne International Jazz Festival show.

Headed by Snarky Puppy’s multi-Grammy–winning percussion duo of Robert “Sput” Searight and Nate Werth, Ghost-Note is an explosion of sound. With an expansive roster of next-level musicians—representing members of Prince, Snoop Dogg, Erykah Badu, Herbie Hancock, Kendrick Lamar, Marcus Miller, Toto, Justin Timberlake, and more—the band is pushing funk music into the future, building on the uplifting, pioneering foundations laid out by the likes of James Brown and Sly & The Family Stone and infusing their fresh take with tastes of afrobeat, hip-hop, psychedelia, world folklore, and more. 

The group’s two studio albums – 2018’s Swagism and 2015’s Fortified – have earned critical acclaim and popular success around the globe, with both albums hitting #1 on the iTunes jazz charts.

Listen back to The Afterglow on Wednesday June 5 for Ghost-Note's Studio 5 Live session.
