Hear Here February 9, 2007

Friday Feb 9

Northampton Center for the Arts 7:30
Cooper-Moore, who will play February 9, is a composer, pianist, designer and builder of musical

instruments and music educator. A native of the Piedmont area of Virginia, Cooper-Moore (who uses

only one hyphenated name) moved to New York in 1973, leased a five-floor Canal Street building and

transformed it into a work space for performing and visual artists. He has performed in the bands

of Joseph Daley, Perry Robinson, Susie Ibarra, Warren Smith and Butch Morris, and with the dance

companies of Jill Becker, Koo Dance, and Movin’ Spirits Dance Theater. Triptych Myth, his trio

with Tom Abbs and Chad Taylor, has just released “The Beautiful” (AUM Fidelity). Andy Battaglia of called him, “one of New York's most effusive but reclusive musical geniuses.

Cooper-Moore is a one- man New Orleans jazz funeral flailing like the Grambling State marching

band across a vaudeville stage.” He also has considerable experience as a music therapist and

educator and is a national consultant for Headstart.

Cooper-Moore is a marginal figure in the jazz world, a multi-instrumentalist, composer and

instrument builder who is best known for his work in the stylistic free-for-all that is the

downtown New York scene, playing in groups like the Susie Ibarra Trio, and Triptych Myth. This

solo piano recital is a perfect introduction to his odd, modal-jazz based musical world, in which

he sometimes seems to be attempting to find a common ground between folk and free jazz. His

percussive piano style encompasses Jaki Byard's polyglot whimsy, McCoy Tyner's power and Cecil

Taylor's hard-hitting tone clusters.
