On his way to Berlin, Jack Cooper took some time to reflect on a remarkable career in music. Once an aspiring baseball player, Cooper parlayed a childhood love of jazz into a life most can only dream of–touring the world as a composer, music director and artist. He’s collaborated with heavyweights that read like a who’s who of the the industry. Cooper lists his favorites and who was a nightmare to work with? In a lighthearted moment, Jack speaks of the girl from high school he adored who someday will be an inspiration for a song.
