Berklee Summer Concert SeriesZac Zinger Group
Formed in 2007 and recently signed to Jazz Revelation Records, the Zac Zinger Group is one of Berklee's most promising up-and-coming bands. Led by saxophonist/composer Zac Zinger, the quartet's repertoire includes an ever-expanding list of more than thirty originals and an extensive knowledge of the old classics. Though each member has a strong base and fundamental knowledge of the standards, ZZG's focus is on the development of new music, incorporating unique forms, grooves, harmony, and melody to each piece. Influenced by elements of jazz, soul, funk, gospel, fusion, and r&b, but not quite fitting into one specific genre, ZZG boasts a fresh contemporary sound that has been compared to artists as prominent as the Yellowjackets, John Coltrane, and Cannonball Adderly.
