Synergy: Bobby Kapp Plays the Music of Richard Sussman

Tweed Boulevard Records, 2023

The album “Synergy” features original compositions for clarinet/bass clarinet, violin, French horn, tenor sax, piano, bass, and drums. “Synergy” - the interaction of elements that when combined produce a total effect that is greater than the sum of the individual elements, contributions, etc. - describes the collaboration of Richard Sussman and Bobby Kapp on this remarkable recording. With “Synergy”, Sussman continues his exploration of the integration of jazz harmonies and improvisation with contemporary classical compositional techniques and instrumentation.
