The PCA Jazz Series presents Syncopation
April 9, 2011
The Boston Globe calls Syncopation the “Manhattan Transfer of the 21st Century” and it is easy to see why. Like that legendary vocal group, Syncopation performs jazz and pop music that is both timeless and up-to-the-minute. These four young singer/musicians have performed across the U.S. at the Tanglewood Jazz Festival, the Tri-C Vocal Jazz Festival, the Boston Globe Jazz Festival, the Meihou Jazz Festival in Japan, and the 2004 and 2006 International Association for Jazz Education Conferences in New York City. Syncopation has also been featured with the Boston Pops. The style of Syncopation includes bebop, latin, and pop influences. The group performs a cappella as well as with a band. Each of the four singers is also an instrumentalist and is occasionally featured playing trumpet, trombone, piano, and percussion.
Syncopation is: Aubrey Logan: soprano, trombone, Christine Fawson: alto, trumpet, David Thorne Scott: tenor, trumpet, Tsunenori “Lee” Abe: bass, trombone, arranger
