”Cohen is a multicultural jazz musician, among whose ancestors is Miles Davis. Like Davis, he can make the trumpet a vehicle for uttering the most poignant human cries.” — The New York Times
Jazz hero Enrico Rava calls him his favorite young trumpeter: Avishai Cohen, who must not be confused with the bassist of the same name, is recognized all around the world for his expressive, contemporary style. His quartet excels in high energy improvisation. Avishai’s music reveals he originally comes from Israel, a ‘crossroads between Eastern and Western music’, according to the trumpet player.
‘Everything you could want from a devastating young band: complete command, interaction dynamics, a sense of play and adventure. Add to it Avishai Cohen’s penetrating voice on trumpet, and you need nothing more. It’s a complete package’ (Downbeat).
