Cryogenic Renaissance Orchestra
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.” Artists’ Web site
