After 30 years, BYU Syncopation’s debut album has finally arrived! This vocal jazz group from Brigham Young University is rooted in the artistic collaboration between vocalists and instrumentalists, each bringing unique backgrounds and musical vocabularies to work side by side. This album captures the stylistic breadth of more than 100 years of jazz repertoire, representing styles from the trunk of the jazz tree, such as swing, bebop, and samba, as well as from the ever-reaching branches of jazz funk, hip-hop, and world music fusion.
