Cooper-Moore: A Journey on the Road

By Published: March 8, 2005
There it was, the inquisitive mind, the exploring, the knowing more, the making of things from nothing, the improvising, the process of doing and of "make do".

Yes, it is about the learning, and the performing of the music for the people, and the learning and advancing forward, building and learning and advancing forward 'til we wither away into dust.

The near 60-year old Cooper-Moore is an improviser, composer, music educator and music and instrument creator, designer, and builder (e.g. the xylophone related ashimba, as well as the bass diddly-bow, horizontal hoe-handle harp, the 3-string fretless banjo and electric mouth bow). He has associations with saxophonist David S. Ware, William Parker, Bill Cole and more recently Assif Tsahar.
