Cooper-Moore, both as writer and pianist, offers a refreshing alternative to all those conventionally dazzling jazz pianists that keep coming out of the woodwork. He plays well, but deliberately avoids prettiness. Has anyone coined the term 'punk jazz' yet? Abbs' 'Raising Knox' is another charismatic change of scenery. Cooper-Moore sits out while Abbs takes drummer Chad Taylor and the audience out to his neighborhood for an intermezzo. The trio sounds, whether the case or not, as if it's got some years under its collective belt  . America by Rex Butters. Triptych Myth by Ty Cumbie. Deep In the Neighborhood of History and Influence by Derek Taylor.

Cooper-Moore's infatuation with tribal percussion and gospel-tinged work outs certainly help lend the set an air of timeless nostalgia. With lineups that vary from duo to full quartet, the album encompasses all of Cooper-Moore's early interests and makes for a varied and revealing listening experience. One of the more revelatory surprises is the appearance of a young David S. Ware. Cooper-Moore lays a vamping bed of undulating percussive tones that sound almost electronic in their unearthliness. The recording session is filled out with two free tracks, takes 5 and 6 of "Trio," that give an early glimpse into Cooper-Moore's percussive pianism and Ware's embryonic tenor. Ware drifts a bit too far into his Ayler reverence on the gospelized "Prayer, take 8," but he sounds more inspired than imitative. Deep In The Neighborhood Of History And Influence.

Cooper moore at the digital art lab. Cooper-Moore (born Gene Y. Ashton, August 31, 1946, Loudoun County, Virginia) is an American jazz pianist, composer and instrument builder/designer based in New York City. At age 8, he was recruited by community leaders to be the piano player for the town, and soon thereafter performed at church services and community functions. When he was 12 years old, he heard musicians such as Ahmad Jamal and Charles Mingus, and was inspired to pursue jazz. He has cited pianist Jaki Byard’s contributions to Mingus’ band as a particular inspiration. Solo: Deep in the Neighborhood of History and Influence (Hopscotch, 2001).

Deep, resonant oscillator warble, void of unnecessary motion: Exactly what I’m looking for whilst scouring the darkest recesses of this music. An unheard historical example, ahead of the curve, seldom discussed. But I simply can’t; my phone has already buzzed twice during the opening 11-minute number; there’s another computer in the other room doing something quite taxing, adding a certain mid-range crackle of hard drive/fan noise to the air.
