Al Copley is a pianist and singer. He arranged and cofounded “Roomful of Blues”, the renowned American jump band nominated for two Grammy Awards while he was with them. After 16 years with Roomful, Copley relocated to Europe. In 2002, he performed two of his full symphonic orchestrations before an audience of more than 25,000 with the Boston Festival Orchestra at Summer Pops.
“Capable of evoking at once Jay McShann, Memphis Slim or Art Tatum; Copley interprets the blues most joyfully. “His great sense of humor, his sense of swing and phrasing are a wonder... great conviction" - Bulletin of the Hot Job Club of France http://www.alcopley.net/
