Synchronicity

Aug 10, Friday - 6pm

Synchronicity is a group of nine alumni from various Bay Area big bands, in the tradition of Kai Winding, J.J. Johnson, Miles Davis, Herbie Hancock and Quincy Jones.

Calling themselves a “classical jazz ensemble” and “a little brass big band,” Synchronicity is led by flegelhornist Jerry Kroth, a professor at Santa Clara University.

Other member of the group — which includes no less than four trombonists, as well as baritone saxophone, piano, bass and drums — attended or have been employed by other local educational institutions, including San Jose State Univeristy. Synchronicity’s eclectic repertoire includes their own arrangements of classics such as “West Coast Blues,” Whistle While You Work,” “Sunrise Sunset,” “All Blues” and “My Favorite Things.”
