Playing several equipment, notably different associates from the clarinet family members, Cooper made a very important contribution to several traditional jazz rings in the united kingdom.

As recognized an observer from the United kingdom jazz scene simply because Digby Fairweather, with whom Cooper documented, likened him, with significant justification, to Sandy Dark brown which was compliment indeed.
