Synapse(!) @ Club Kuumbwa

SynapseBanner

If you weren’t at Kuumbwa Jazz Center for progressive jazz-fusion group Synapse(!) last Saturday night, you surely missed out! The dynamic, sharp styling of saxophonist Nikki Mokover and trumpeter Nick Bianchini was backed by an amazing rhythm section; featuring percussion monster Jaime Sanchez, keyboardist Ittai Rosenbaum and bassist Robert Ross. Oliver Whitcroft provided live sampling and looping throughout the show as well. The 1.5 hour set took the entire audience by force- with wild dancing, cheering and general mind expansion as a result.

Synapse(!) is “a cultural culmination of musicians whose diverse backgrounds each add a unique flavor to a fresh yet mature sound. Synapse is alchemy, melting multiple genres into one in pursuance of solid gold.”
