This dynamic, brilliant sounding mini-big band is led by jazz composer, arranger, trumpeter, and Berklee faculty member Greg Hopkins. He creates a big band sound with a much smaller instrumentation in his own unique and original voice. The tight-knit nine-piece unit boasts some of the best jazz talent anywhere. Hopkins, longtime professor of jazz composition at Berklee, was soloist/arranger for the Buddy Rich Band in 1972-1974 before settling in the Boston area. In the Boston Globe, Bob Blumenthal called him "one of Boston's unappreciated jazz treasures."
