Synopsis

Album Description
Exclusive two CD Asian tour edition couples the Swedish Electronica duo's 2001 sophomore album and the remix EP that followed soon thereafter. The two CDs come packaged in a DVD amaray box. Not electronic music with a touch of Jazz, but Jazz sparingly laced with electronics. Magnus Zingmark and Oscar Simonsson, both from Sweden's main university-town Uppsala, were the first two jazzheads in their hometown to lose interest in the perpetual Hammond organ-licking of Jimmy Smith. Instead, they embarked together down the more rewarding paths of Hard-bop and raw Latin beats, avoiding fusion's tendency to dilute the original spirit of Jazz. Waltz For Koop has been played, charted and loved to death by people like Kruder & Dorfmeister, Jazzanova, Rainer Trnby, Les Gammas, and Gilles Peterson.
