Avishai Cohen - Trumpet: Into the Silence

Read "Into the Silence" reviewed by Mark Sullivan

Trumpeter Avishai Cohen makes his ECM leader debut with Into the Silence, an album dedicated to the memory of his late father. Cohen composed the melodies over six months following his father's passing in November 2014, inspired by an album of Rachmaninoff's solo piano music. It's not always sad music--this is not a collection of dirges--but ...

Avishai Cohen - Trumpet: Triveni II

Read "Triveni II" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

Trumpeter Avishai Cohen had already reached the upper echelons of the jazz world when he put Triveni into motion, but this trio's debut--Introducing Triveni (Anzic Records, 2010)--still managed to mark a quantum leap in his artistry. The Israeli-born horn man first made stateside ripples when he placed third in the Thelonious Monk Jazz Trumpet Competition in ...

Third World Love: Songs and Portraits

Read "Songs and Portraits" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Il titolo del disco, Songs and Portraits, sembra quasi anonimo, così abusato, storpiato, variamente declinato. Poi si ascolta l'album e la minaccia di anonimato scompare.

Third World Love: New Blues

Read "New Blues" reviewed by Joel Roberts

Third World Love is comprised of three Israelis (trumpeter Avishai Cohen, pianist Yonathan Avishai and bassist Omer Avital) and a native New Yorker (drummer Daniel Freedman). The band has been promoted as a “world-fusion" group and its press clippings hail its appeal to young non-jazz audiences. But make no mistake: Third World Love is a group ...
