Cooper-Moore | Back
Piano & Home-Made Instruments

Born in Virginia in 1946, Cooper-Moore has been a significant catalyst in American free music since playing piano in the New York loft scene of the 1970s. But for more than a decade from 1981 he largely disappeared from jazz circles, working instead on teaching children through music, and then becoming active in theatre and dance productions. It was also during this period that he largely abandoned the piano, and began to build and perform on his own hand-crafted instruments. Even after he was persuaded to return to jazz performance, and to the piano, he restricted himself to working with bassist William Parker, and rarely toured. So his first appearance in Newcastle in 2003 was a revelation to nearly everybody, bowled over not just by his playing, but also by his great rapport with the audience. A unique and remarkable musician, it's always a pleasure to welcome him back to Tyneside.
