BIOGRAPHY

Kenneth Brick Cooper's, aka. KBrick, early years in music (late 50’s thru mid 70’s) was enriched by father Frank W. Cooper, who briefly played tenor sax with Count Basie, Lionel Hampton, Cootie Williams and others. And by great teachers and mentors like John C. Williams, Milton Hall, Don Dustin, Shelly Thomas, and Benny Golson.

 

Since 2010 (after a 32 year sabbatical from music) KBrick renewed his passion playing woodwind instruments, song writing, and performing. After retiring from sales with 3M company, he moved to Laughlin, NV. and developed a solo act, The KBrickShow whose music medium is SoulJazz. The KBrickShow’s repertoire includes Classic, Latin & Smooth Jazz, classic soul, and KBrick originals. His performances are notable in his mellow vocal styling, and performances on soprano, alto, & tenor saxophones, various clarinets, and flute. The KBrickShow is featured (since 2015) bi-weekly, Wednesday thru Saturday, in the Bighorn Cafe at the Laughlin River Lodge Resort Casino; every Monday night at Lisa’s Bistro & Bar; and performs for VIP and special events at Harrah’s Laughlin Resort Casino.
