3 Cohens: Tightrope

Read "Tightrope" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi

Nei loro dischi precedenti (vedi Family) c'erano diversi momenti in cui i fratelli israeliani s'esibivano in libere improvvisazioni a tre voci.

Il trombettista Avishai Cohen (da non confondere con l'omonimo bassista), il sassofonista Yuval ...

Read "Dan Bilawsky's Best Releases Of 2013" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

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 ...
