Synopsis

Album Description
Koop comes from a universe where Miles Davis never made Bitches Brew, replacing swing with funk, and instead double basses kept walking and jazz kept swinging all the way until the sampler arrived to chop it up. 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, now residing in Stockholm, 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 re-released by Palm Pictures with a added tracks and a bonus DVD, containing the acclaimed videos for "Summer Sun" and "Glomd," as well as two remixes, "Summer Sun" (Markus Enochson Remix) and "Relaxin' at Club F***n" (Dorfmeister vs. Madrid de los Austrias Version).

Smoooooth!

"This is soooo smooth, so luxurious, sooo...aaaaah!
I love it.

I first heard tracks from this CD on last FM online and loved it ever since.

I listen to this type of music after work, in solitude, with a nice drink."
Perfect for bright nights and summer sun, baby!

"This is light, breezy lounge jazz, perfect for cocktail hour by the pool. As dozens of your close-knit circle of VIP friends roll up for their sundowners, they will be pleasantly intrigued but charmed by these sounds. Time to dig out the cruisewear and head for the islands"
