Syncopation, "The Manhattan Transfer of the 21st Century", Releases New CD


Sign in to view read count
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. 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's new CD, Wonderful You, is complete! It is the first U.S. recording that the group has put out in six years. Wonderful You is ready to take your stereo system out for a really fine meal with a special bottle of wine and then go find a nice secluded spot to gaze at the stars and maybe, just maybe, pop the question. As members of Generation X, Y, Why Not?, or Zwhatever, Syncopation decided to take pop songs from the past 30 years and give them the Syncopation treatment. R&B, soul, folk rock, fusion and electropop are transformed using jazz harmonies, rhythms and style.

Syncopation is:

Aubrey Logan
Christine Fawson
David Thorne Scott
Tsunenori “Lee" Abe

with Mark Shilansky (piano), Greg Holt (bass), Steve Langone (drums), and Marcus Santos (percussion)

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
