Fiona's Comments

Taking a worm for a walk...sounds cute. If this is music for the end of times, Cohen probably means the end of closing times...at the bar, after lost contemplation of a potus-tate for the good of the people.

About the Album

Ben Cohen is a saxophonist/composer living in Brooklyn. Viriditas is a 12th century latinate word meaning spiritual fertility, greenness, and vitality, a word that aptly captures the vibe of this highly evocative saxophone trio. Led by saxophonist Ben Cohen, Viriditas combines jazz, blues, folk, and the avant-garde into a hard grooving, free wheeling, adventurous sound, both immediately recognizable and wholly unique. Ross Gallagher: bass; Deric Dickens: drums.
