Grandpa Musselman & His Syncopators is a New York City musical group performing masterpieces from the first generation of jazz. Founded in 2006 by trombonist Matt Musselman, the ensemble consists of Manhattan School of Music graduates assembled in a classic New Orleans configuration (trumpet, trombone, soprano saxophone, piano, tuba and drums) exploring vintage repertoire spanning 1900s ragtime to 1950s swing. In 2007 they were selected for the Jazz Aspen Snowmass Academy where they rehearsed and performed extensively under the mentorship of Christian McBride and Loren Schoenberg.
