Jack and the spare hearts

... is a new project underway with musicians Jack has immensely enjoyed working with in the (recent and not-so-recent) past.  With a vibe borrowing bits from Stax, Motown, 70s R&B revisionists, and some Elvis Costello and Nick Lowe thrown in for good measure, this new unit grants Jack the flexibility to pivot between singing, playing some low brass (mostly valve trombone), and throwing some guitar riffs into the mix in order to best suit his body of incisive, passionate, and at times bitter and sardonic original songs.  

Band members:
Jack Cooper - vocals, rhythm guitar, trombone
Robert Reid - lead guitar
Ken Brown - bass
Steve Aylward - drums
Kim Regimbal - tenor sax
