Jazz and Gospel

In the jazz and gospel vein, Tracey’s voice features an authentic, velvety tone, which has a seemingly limitless, translucent range.  The influence of the greats in jazz singing are clearly visible in her performance, but are treated respectfully and not imitated, so that a very intimate, unique interpretation arises.   Despite her classical background, her sound is pure jazz.  

Tracey has performed in clubs around Munich, including the Bayrischer Hof Piano Bar, the Bayrischer Hof Night Club, Café Beethoven (Mariandl), Mister B's, Jazzbar Vogler, Ars Music/Stemmerhof, Kongress Bar, Cantina Pasing, Eclipse, Santos Cafe Piano Bar, Hot Shot Bar, The Brandstetter, Kook's Bar, Galli Theater Jazz Lounge, theTrostberger TwoDay Jazz Festival, as well as many private parties, weddings and events.

Trained as a professional opera singer, Tracey Cooper, a native of Ellington, Connecticut, USA, appeared in productions with Ithaca Opera, Virginia Opera, Des Moines Metro Opera, New Jersey Verismo Opera, The Manhattan School of Music, The Natchez Opera Festival, Harlem Opera, Danbury Opera, Norwalk Opera, and the Bregenzer Festspiel, among others, with a long list of operatic roles to her credit. Tracey earned her Bachelor’s of Music degree in Vocal Performance from the renowned The Manhattan School of Music.  She has described in reviews as a singer with “... a voice of power and beauty...” and praised her singing as possessing “marvelous flexibility.”

Tracey also performs classically.

With Davide Roberts, Thomas Obermayer, John Brunton, Cédric Bonnet and Bernd Huber, Tracey has found the ideal musical companions.  The trios are well-established, yet have the gift of spontaneously in their performance.  Audiences are treated to the rare gift of friends who enjoy playing music together.

 

(DE):

Tracey Adele Cooper studierte an der renommierten Manhattan School of Music und erwarb dort den Bachelor of Music im Fach Vocal- Performance.

Sie hatte weltweit Engagements an renommierten Opernhäusern und stand mit vielen berühmten Interpreten gemeinsam auf der Bühne.

Im Jazz besticht sie durch eine authentische, samtige Stimme, welche mit einer schier grenzenlos scheinenden Bandbreite ausgestattet ist. Ihre Opernausbildung hört man vordergrundig nicht, was durchaus als Kompliment zu verstehen ist. Die großen Vorbilder des Jazzgesanges sind in ihrer Performance deutlich zu erkennen, werden aber äußerst respektvoll behandelt und keineswegs imitiert, sodass eine sehr intime, eigenständige Interpretation entsteht.

Mit Davide Roberts, Thomas Obermayer, John Brunton, Cédric Bonnet, und Bernd Huber hat Ms. Cooper die idealen Begleiter gefunden. Die Band ist gut eingespielt und agiert spontan. Das Publikum merkt, dass sich hier Freunde gefunden haben, die Spaß am gemeinsamen Musizieren haben.
