**DIGITAL ONLY** Society Syncopators - Congo Square

**Avaliable through digital means only**

Album Description

Formed in 1984, Chris Ludowyk hand picked the cream of Melbourne’s jazz talent to form the ‘Society Syncopators’, now known as ‘The Syncopators’. Within a few short years, the band arrived at the pinnacle of Australian jazz. With their versatility (the guitarist plays banjo, the bassist plays tuba, the clarinettist plays alto and tenor sax and the trombonist plays bass and piano), they cover a wide range of styles and material. The vocal harmonising talent of the front-line also lends itself to the performance of ‘popular jazz’ material a la ‘Mills Brothers’ and ‘Boswell Sisters’.

This is the most spirited offering ever from this band. A lot of work has gone into it and work is rewarded when you have a result like this, an imaginative choice of un-hackneyed tunes and some charming whimsical twists in the arrangements.

‘Congo Square’ is only available digitally through iTunes, Amazon and all other major digital platforms.
