Album Notes
Last summer, I started thinking about recording a new CD. So, I looked through the original songs I had piled up to see if a theme or thread ran through them. There were four tunes I previously recorded with the Loose Acoustic Trio (the folk/Cajun/ragtime band I play with) that I wanted to include on a Mister Cooper CD. The lyrics needed to be re-written to make them kid friendly. Then I finished up a few other songs reflecting on childhood from a parent’s perspective. There was also some new material that was a little bit different than what I had sung on the last record, “Mister Cooper is for the birds”(winner of a Parent's Choice Award 2011). This current project was turning out to be an album about kids (instead of for kids) that the whole family could enjoy. At the last minute, I added a couple of songs that I could sing at school with the 2nd graders. That was enough to start creating the CD titled “I Like Your Hat.” Once again, Scott McChane engineered, mixed, and produced the proceedings. He even designed the cover artwork. Now, at long last, this new music is ready for the world.

What you’ll hear is 16 songs, half with the band (Richie Lawrence – accordion, piano, vocals and Steve O’Neill – bass, vocals) and half on my own. Lauren Norton (of the Davis band Souterrain) sang the harmony vocals. And some of the sweetest girls at Sutterville Elementary School added their voices to a few numbers. This time around, there’s a song about hats (of course), rain, a bully, snacks, and playing horsey with your dad. Also included is a version of “Pinball Wizard” by the Who, done up Mister Cooper style. It’s acoustic, up-tempo, good time music that will make your ears smile all day long. I really hope you like it…

This is evolution
Mister Cooper's 4th CD release, 'I Like Your Hat' is a bit of a departure from his previous 3 cds. To use his words, this CD is 'about' kids rather than 'for' kids. Every song on this release evokes a myriad of emotions, each of them meaningful and connected to one's inner sensitivities. Individually, each song stands well on its own, and collectively, they create an experience not to be missed by any child or adult.
