Album Notes
"A Leg Trick" reached #5 on radio charts (3/28/12)

"Girl in the Garden" reaches #3 on CDBaby's jam band chart (3/21/12)

"Holy cow, Scott Cooper’s new CD A Leg Trick is a phat collection of 11 bluesy, jammy, Americana tunes ... Polished and infectious, it’s a CD you can love on the first listen. Great album."
-- Glenn Starkey, SLO New Times

"'A Leg Trick' by Scott Cooper and his gang is loaded with cool stories in
three minute bursts. As a lyricist wanna-be they have created what I always
want to do. And if you take the album as a surreal little movie, you have a
record that cuts deep. Check it out."
John Shelton Ivany, NY Times syndicate contributing editor

"Scott Cooper from Santa Cruz California has mustered some of the finest talent in the bay area for his latest album, A Leg Trick... Despite a long time in the making, Cooper has finally reached his glory, not only for his latest masterpiece, but also as a multi-instrumentalist who has paid his dues and is now reaping the benefits. Cooper can look back on his twenty-plus years in the business, while looking ahead with confidence as an accomplished musician in the industry."
Andrew Tuckman,


Scott Cooper is a veteran of the San Francisco Bay Area music scene. He started out as a drummer backing blues legends such as Johnny Shines and Luther Tucker, as well as regional artists Robert Lowery, Lady Bo (Bo Diddley's lead guitarist) and Rusty Zinn. Then played in a band with Ben Ellman (later with Galactic) and Luca Fredericksen (later with Wolfman Washington). In the 90s, he worked with a popular jam band called Deep Blue Sea, which allowed him the vehicle to write original material. From there it was on to play with Relix Records jam band Stackabones, where Scott eventually moved from behind the drums to playing bass. Scott has recorded three CDs with Stackabones where he plays drums, bass, guitar and keyboards. Once established as a bass player Scott started working with the Gary Gates Band. Scott has been playing with Gary for nearly a decade now and is on Gary's popular "At the San Gregorio General Store" CD produced by John Nowland (Neil Young, Jewel). For the past 4 years, Scott has fronted the popular Grateful Dead tribute band the China Cats, where he handle the Bob Weir rhythm guitar parts. Scott is well known for having more musical projects than anyone, including leading a monthly bluegrass jam, performing solo gigs, playing children's music with the Banana Slug String Band, and a side project called the Secret Chimp with Jim Lewin (Great American Taxi) and Bill Laymon (NRPS, David Nelson Band, Kingfish). When he's not gigging or recording his prolific repertoire of original material, Scott sells djembes for Drumskull Drums and teaches guitar at UC-Santa Cruz.
