Sheila Cooper

Canadian-born, New York-based singer, alto saxophonist, composer and arranger, Sheila Cooper is -- as saxophone legend Lee Konitz has noted -- “a singer on her horn and with her voice, and that's the best playing for me.” Ever since she moved to New York, she has been wowing audiences at the city's top venues, including the Blue Note, Birdland, The Knitting Factory and Five-Spot.

And her European tours in support of her acclaimed first CD “Since You Were Mine” which featured world-class rhythm section Renee Rosnes, Scott Colley and Billy Drummond were triumphantly successful, playing to enthusiastic audiences in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, France, Czech Republic, Slovenia, Slovakia. “It was so thrilling to have people lining up in the break to have me autograph CDs,” says Cooper. “I was quite overwhelmed by how excited they were.”
