For: Piano
Price: $8.00 (+ shipping & handling: $3.00 USA, $6.00 outside USA)



This CD contains several recordings which capture the artistry of Michael Cooper during 2000 and 2001 - an
impromptu recording session, and then a concert a few months later. While these donít quite reach the polish
Mr. Cooper aspires to, in no way do they fall short in the passion, grace and youthful exuberance with which
he brings alive again these great masterworks of the piano. These tracks contain an emotional richness which
brings satisfaction to the listener in a way one doesnít experience every day. Enjoy!
