“Culminated from Lettieri's popular social media video series, "Baritone Funk Thursday," Deep: The Baritone Sessions shows his affinity for the dark and dirty baritone guitar, and brings all its conceivable rhythmic applications to the forefront on seven songs of aggressive groove. Featuring contributions from heavyweights such as fellow Snarky Puppy members Bobby Sparks, Jason "JT" Thomas, and Justin Stanton, plus Wes Stephenson (Funky Knuckles) and Philip Lassiter (Prince).”
