Cooper-Moore is a legend of free music. Originally from Virginia, He has been living in New York City, on and off, since the 1970, working closely with artists such as David S. Ware, William Parker, Susie Ibarra and Chad Taylor. A true innovator, in addition to piano, he plays a variety of self invented and built instruments. Cooper-Moore is also an educator and has been a mentor to many of creative music's most daring instrumentalists. This conversation took place this past March on a bitter cold day and I am delighted to be able to share it with you all.
