NYC-based pianist and storyteller Cooper-Moore's hyperspeedy fingers create dizzying, rapid-fire notes. To watch them is to be reminded of a Tom and Jerry chase scene. The piano virtuoso, who's been honing his avant-garde jazz for 35 years, comes to Barnevelder Movement/Arts Complex today.
After taking a break to teach music to at-risk kids through the Head Start program, he has returned to performing, hooking up with serious players such as William Parker and his group Triptych Myth. Always the giver, Cooper-Moore also will lead a weeklong workshop for homeless children while he's in town for the solo show. Talk about someone with heart and soul.
Fri., May 5, 8 p.m.
