Oscar Simonsson makes a triumphant return to the Jazz Cafe following the two sell out comeback shows in 2017, bringing back his new band the seven-piece Koop Oscar Orchestra as they perform iconic Koop songs as well as 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 of Koop, originally written by Simonsson, 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.
In support on the night come the majestic and unique brass lead jazz explosion that is Barnacles.
