Description:
Flyin' the Koop is the second solo album by New Orleans drummer Stanton Moore. The album includes funk, rock and jazz. Moore's line-up for Flyin' the Koop is in part a combination of musicians with whom he played at a "SuperJam" at Tipitina's during Jazz Fest 2000.

Moore's concept for the album "was to have two saxes, bass and drums, and to improvise over loops..." building the tracks upon rhythm. Melodies then developed through improvisation and composition by the saxophonists. Also, some tracks were written before the session. "Amy's Lament" was a Moore instrumental that he envisioned as a contemporary twist on a New Orleans dirge; it is named after Moore's first wife. "Magnolia Triangle" is a classic New Orleans composition in 5/4 meter from famed New Orleans drummer and composer James Black. "Let's Go" and "Hunch" are both contributions from the writing team of Charlie Dennard and Brian Seeger who were half of Moore's working band at the time, "Moore and More".
