The “Godmother of Japanese Electronica” performs Milk for New York audiences.
Described by Bleep.com as “The lost daughter of Björk & Aphex Twin,” Coppé is a pioneering vocalist, producer, and collaborator with Plaid, AtomTM, and other luminaries. Coppé tours NYC to debut her new disc of electro-inflected jazz reinterpretations, Milk, which is now out on Mango + Sweetrice records. Marc Urselli (laptop), Keith Witty (acoustic bass), and Chris Nattrass (acoustic bass) will accompany the artist.
Marc Urselli is a Grammy award-winning engineer/producer for renowned artists including U2, Lou Reed, Keith Richards, Mike Patton, Laurie Anderson, John Zorn, and Jack Dejohnette to name a few. Coppé met Marc on her last NYC tour, and she says, “It’s her dream-come-true 2 work with this open-minded talent 4 the very 1st time!!!”
Percy Jones and his fretless bass launched MJ12. He and drummer Stephen Moses developed an original repertoire, completing it with saxophonist Chris Bacas and guitarist David Phelps. Their sound mashes prog-rock, free jazz, and sly humor together in precise romps, crushing grooves, and drone-based improvisations.
Grammy-nominated sax phenom Patrick Bartley leads J-Music Ensemble, a stellar group of Manhattan School of Music graduates re-envisioning the J-pop and Japanese video game music that inspire them in a jazz context.
Coppé will have three shows in New York City, hitting Nublu Classic, Silvana, and Ideal Glass. The tour is presented by AvanTokyo, a collaboration between Saiko, Willard Morgan, and the Globus Family.
