Oscar Simonsson makes a triumphant return to the Jazz Cafe following his sell out comeback show in January, bringing back his new project the seven-piece Koop Oscar Orchestra as they perform iconic Koop tracks as well new unreleased material.
After the second release Waltz for Koop, Swedish duo Koop quickly achieved cult underground status, with iconic tracks like ‘Koop Island Blues’, ‘Come To Me’ and ‘Summer Sun’ establishing a new sound for jazz. Consisting of Oscar Simonsson and Magnus Zingmark, the pair created innovative music rooted largely in jazz but also elements of hip-hop and dance.
The Orchestra play the music originally written for Koop, reinterpreting iconic material from duo alongside new unreleased tracks. On stage the group reimagine Koop’s beautiful electronic landscapes – created through piecing together samples from thousands of records – through live instrumentation and hypnotic performance.
Simonsson places huge importance on the “togetherness” of the music, and with such a highly anticipated live show, the Koop Oscar Orchestra are bound to unite fans new and old.
