“Avishai Cohen is back and he couldn't be any better.” Hassina Mechaï, Toute Le Culture (FR)
Over the last two decades the bassist, singer, composer, innovator and band leader Avishai Cohen has earned his reputation as one of the world's greatest bassists. It is however as a composer that his musical statement has grown. Now with his Trio he brings fresh arrangements to the stage, presenting music from his latest album 'From Darkness' (February 2015), as well as performing many audience favourites from his past recordings and live shows.
Accompanying him on stage is one of the most diverse, versatile and fresh voices to emerge from the current jazz scene, pianist and composer, Omri Mor. On many occasions, Omri has performed and toured worldwide alongside Avishai in duet and as part of Avishai’s renowned Trio formation. His musical spectrum spans from Classical and Jazz, through to Arabo - Andalousian, Algerian Chaabi and Latin music.
“[Cohen] Seldom has one heard such an intensive concert sprinkling all genre borders like this… A master of integration…” Rhein Main Presse (DE)
Adding to the musical energy on stage, is the very talented Daniel Dor who was recently quoted as being 'in a league of his own', and 'unstoppable.' Daniel entered Avishai's musical world during 2013, quickly managing to breathe new life into it, and has continued to perform and work alongside Avishai ever since.
“The stage is undoubtedly a place where Cohen feels at home, so much so that attending one of his live performances is probably the best way to get acquainted with his music universal.”
