to the title track from our upcoming album, The Birth of a Fool: MP3: The Fool
Copus combines the timeless quality of classical,
jazz, world, blues and other musical genres coupled with original poetic
verse and the result is Spoken Word / Millennium Music. Featuring the
brilliant, passionate piano compositions of Wendy Loomis and the spoken
word artistry of Royal Kent, the Copus sound bridges millennia.
On this debut CD, the flutist is Elinor van Ommen, fluid
and nice. Bennie Murray is drummer extraordinare and Don Holloway is
the man on percussion. Beth Snellings joins us on cello along with Liz
McDonough sharing her vocal magic. Eljohn produces and adds his own
sweet touch on several tracks (Alchemy of Life, In the Beginning, Later
Than You Think) as does Debra Podjed with her hypnotic tar on Six Moons.
The powerful, original painting on the cover of Later Than
You Think is called African Storm, created by Debra Podjed. The intensity
of her colors behind the clouds parallels the passing of the darkness
from the past into the brilliance of the future. Graphics designer Elham
Sedaghtinia continued the swirling theme throughout the CD booklet reflecting
the idea that Copus will lead us into the new millennium.
