Danceable big band music and hot jazz and swing! Open Air.
Syncopation Society Orchestra
The Syncopation Society Orchestra (SSO for short) is a superband composed of members of almost all Syncopation Society bands, i.e. they are all active in the traditional European jazz scene and have a deep knowledge of this music. The ensemble's focus is on the very danceable music played by the very first big bands beginning in the mid-1920s. There are few large ensembles throughout Europe dedicated to reviving the arrangements of these jazz ensembles. Thanks to Claus Jacobi's transcriptions, the orchestra plays a select repertoire that includes Fletcher Henderson, King Oliver, the Luis Russell Orchestra, Paul Howard and others. The SSO is currently recording its first album for the release of the musical show "Elli et les Roarin' 20." https://syncopation.de/bands/
