The 3 Cohens' new recording is a powerful acknowledgement of the importance of Family. Although Yuval, Anat and Avishai are perennially busy with numerous projects that make up their individual careers, the remarkable story of the 3 Cohens continues with the release of their new recording, Family (the follow up to the much-lauded Braid), available on Anzic Records now. Joining Yuval, Anat and Avishai on Family is a trio of unparalleled musicians, Aaron Goldberg on piano, Matt Penman on bass and Gregory Hutchinson on drums. Plus, very special guest, Jon Hendricks, delivering his singular style to On The Sunny Side of Street," and Roll 'Em Pete."
The virtuosity and creativity of each of the Cohens serves the music well, of course, but the real treat on this album are the incredibly joyous conversations and interactions that could only sprout from their mutual respect and love for one another. The 3 Cohens' childhood was very different from the usual stories. They shared a special love for music; it was what solidified their unique relationship and allowed them to experience a childhood that most siblings aren't privy to. Through music, we share an emotional and spiritual connection that goes beyond our familial ties. It is beyond words and the imagination," explained Anat.
When the 3 Cohens converged in the studio for the recording of Family, they did so with a fervent dedication to making music together, and a strong desire to celebrate life and family through their music. They explain, every time we play again it is so special. For us, sharing a stage is not just three siblings who play together; it is also a constant reminder of the gift of life. That's why we have decided to have this band." The results are two brilliant recordings, One, and Braid, and now their newest, and perhaps their greatest work together, the celebratory, Family (on Anzic Records, rel date October 11, 2011).
