KOOP

Waltz for Koop

by Adrien Begrand

Relax and Give In . . .

When you hear the new album by Swedish duo Koop, your first instinctive thought is, "This is a jazz album." Even when you notice that this CD is filed under the electronic category in your local record store, when you give it a listen, you're thinking this is a jazz album. Techno, jazz, acid jazz, call it what you will; the bottom line is, these guys from Stockholm have created the most seamless combination of jazz and electronic I have heard in a very long time.

Members Oscar Simonsson and Magnus Zingmark let the jazz do its thing, smartly keeping the electronic enhancements to a minimum. Yes, there are samples (primarily the drums and the odd bassline here and there), but Koop know the purpose of the samples are to provide the rhythmic foundation, with live instruments like bass, flute, vibes, bongos, and the five guest vocalists providing the soul. The result is an album that sounds incredibly natural, with more focus on structure than improvisation. Not to say that it's stiff; contrarily, Koop combines various influences from several forms of jazz, such as modal jazz, bossa nova, big band, West Coast "cool" jazz, silky-smooth European jazz vocals, and John Coltrane-styled solos, turning it all into their own version of jazz fusion.

Koop are cool, calm and collected. With a copy of Songs for Swinging Lovers under one arm and a beatbox in the other, they make some seriously good music. Check out this excellent BBC session from November 2002.

Players: Yukimi Nagano (vocals), Magnus Zingmark (perc and samples), Oscar Simonsson (keyboards), Ola Botzhen (drums, perc), Martin Hoper (bass) and Mattias Stahl (vibes).

I caught an NPR spotlight on Koop last year--very interesting.

If you like K&D, Koop is like their chilled-out cousins.

    • Wait, Burning Man is going online-only? What does that even look like?
      You could have been forgiven for missing the announcement that actual physical Burning Man has been canceled for this year, if not next. Firstly, the nonprofit Burning Man organization, known affectionately to insiders as the Borg, posted it after 5 p.m. PT Friday. That, even in the COVID-19 era, is the traditional time to push out news when you don't want much media attention. 
      But secondly, you may have missed its cancellation because the Borg is being careful not to use the C-word. The announcement was neutrally titled "The Burning Man Multiverse in 2020." Even as it offers refunds to early ticket buyers, considers layoffs and other belt-tightening measures, and can't even commit to a physical event in 2021, the Borg is making lemonade by focusing on an online-only version of Black Rock City this coming August.    Read more...
