Koop

Magnus Zingmark and Oscar Simonsson are responsible for the groundbreaking music that appears under the name Koop. Inspired mainly by jazz musicians, but also learning from the work of hip-hop and dance artists, Zingmark and Simonsson formed the group in the midst of the fertile Swedish jazz scene. After meeting in Uppsala, the pair moved to Stockholm and began working with a series of collaborators, releasing their debut full-length in 1997. Sons of Koop inaugurated a new sound for Swedish jazz and gained the recognition of fellow European jazz/electronica fusion figures Jazzanova and Kruder & Dorfmeister. In 2001, the group delivered Waltz for Koop, an album that validated their exploratory style and borrowed the talents of two female vocalists, Cecilia Stalin and Yukimi Nagano. Following its release of Waltz for Koop, Compost released singles for "Summer Sun" and "Bright Nights," both featuring remixes. The remix album Waltz for Koop: Alternative Takes followed in late 2003, although their proper follow-up, Koop Islands, wasn't released until 2007. ~ Mario Mesquita Borges, Rovi

New album is long overdue!! Can't get good music like this anymore without extensive searching.
This 'is what good music sounds like! I was turned on to Koop in 2004. Some of the greatest jazz infused pop music of the last decade! My anticipation for a new release from this group....is. . . I can't wait!
One of a kind for sure....Love d their music always.

My son had their cd and played it in my car while we were driving. Since then I have loved their music as I have never heard of them before that. My son being a young man of 19 years in the 21st century has such good taste in music. A child definitely born in the wrong era or just a child with good taste I should say. Love my son and his talent and taste for music.
There's not enough Koop in the world.
Dang, I love this song.
Love Koop
I first heard the song koop Island blues on So you think you can dance to and yesterday i was playing song pop and heard it and remembered it and downloaded it. Now i love the group and dowloaded most of their songs.
Sad very sad,for special time in life,I love the sounds,very profane very very much indeed
Satisfaction . . . . . . . . m m m m m n n h h satisfaction
One of the finer pieces of Lite Cocktail Jazz!
I first heard Koop on So You Think You Can Dance. It was for a number choreographe d by Mia Michaels called the butt dance. The piece was sooooooo much fun, music and dance. I finally got a copy of the song Koop Island Blues recently and still think it is a bunch of fun. Jazzy, sexy, and fun. Try it, you might like it.

Every Koop piece offers something - love it

*its like starving the fish and feeding it just before it dies, but with music.

This group is off the HOOK! Beyond creative and inovative. I can't wait for the next album.
I've been a fan of Koop for years!!!!! I love their music!
Koop sounds like poop but koop is better than poop because poop is smelly and koop is cool.

Are you kidding, showbiz? Koop Islands was an AMAZING album. That's ok if it's not your flavor though. :)
I love the Bright Nights remix, this song by far is the best!
Koop Islands was horrible - what happened?!
