Directed by Bruce Rogers

The 13 auditioned Mt. San Antonio students who form Singcopation, which was formed in 1997 by their director Bruce Rogers, specialize in vocal jazz music. They have carried off numerous trophies from vocal jazz competitions, and are regularly described as "#1 college vocal jazz choir in the country by Downbeat Magazine. On most songs the group is accompanied by a jazz band with Piano, Bass, Drums and Latin Percussion, but have a pair of very fine a cappella covers, "I Remember You" and the 5th Dimension's "Grazin' In The Grass," both of which have some sweet vocal percussion and solo work. Other favorites are the title tune, a wonderfully rhythmic "So Danco Samba," a manic, scatty "Down for Double," a kick-butt "Up Jumped the Boogie," a very smooth, driving "Bittersweet," a swinging, sexy "Wild Women Don't Worry" and a sassy, jazzy cover of Sting's "If You Love Somebody." "Specialize in vocal jazz music" aside, these young men and women can sing their butts off, and "Stompin'" is Big Fun, as lively, juicy and enjoyable as any jazz recording we've heard in a long time. You're gonna love this one!
