Joe Cohn

Joe Cohn was fated to a life in music by his antecedents and early exposure to the greatest musicians and composers, Joe, son of legendary saxophonist Al Cohn and vocalist Marylin Moore, has steadily risen to the fore and made his mark as one of the most inventive and catalytic guitarists in jazz. Joe emerged from his years at the Berklee School of Music in the late 70s as a multi-instrumentalist, and is no less impressive on trumpet. His work on guitar is consistently applauded and favorably reviewed. His professional experience as a guitarist is of the first order. He has toured and played with groups led by his father, Al Cohn (1979-87, including Europe), Freddy Cole (touring Brazil), Bob Mover, Nick Brignola, Artie Shaw, Zoot Sims, Buddy DeFranco (ongoing), Al Grey (ongoing), Warren Chiasson (ongoing), Carmine Leggio (ongoing), Claude “Fiddler” Williams (ongoing) and, of course, Harry Allen. On the New York City jazz club and concert scene, he has played the famous Blue Note with Al Cohn, Artie Shaw and Al Grey, Fat Tuesday’s and Sweet Basil with Al Grey, the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion with Artie Shaw and Lincoln Center with Hank Jones and Wynton Marsalis

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
