AllMusic Review by

The 19-piece Brigham Young University big band called Synthesis features strong musicianship, surprisingly mature soloists, and swinging arrangements. Sounding like a professional stage band rather than a college orchestra, the ensemble performs fresh versions of "Time After Time" and "What a Wonderful World" (featuring fl├╝gelhornist Adam Lambert) plus songs written by Matt Catingub ("A Salute to Elvis Costello"), Bob Brookmeyer, Ted Nash, Bob Mintzer, and Pat Metheny on this consistently swinging CD. This is one of the best of the college big bands.
