Avishai Cohen Trio

Avishai Cohen – Bass and Vocals
Omri Mor – Piano
Itamar Doari – Percussion // Noam David – drums

Over the last two decades the bassist, singer, composer 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’, as well as performing many audience favourites from his past recordings alongside several new compositions.

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 Arab – Andalousian, Algerian Chaabi and Latin music.

Avishai’s other partner on stage, is the multi-talented and gifted percussionist Itamar Doari, who has previously recorded with Avishai, featuring on past album successes such as ‘Aurora’ (EMI / 2009) and ‘Seven Seas’ (EMI / 2011). Like Omri, Itamar has performed worldwide alongside Avishai in the past, in varied formations.

“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.”

Press Quotes

‘Seldom has one heard such an intensive concert sprinkling all genre borders like this
…a master of integration.’

– Rhein Main Presse, Germany

‘Bassist and composer, Avishai Cohen is back and he couldn’t be any better”
– Hassina Mechaï, Toute Le Culture, France, Feb 2015

‘[Avishai Cohen’s] playing is as remarkable for its melodic audacity as its technical prowess.’
– l’Alsace, (Online) France, Feb 2015

‘From Darkness” gives you the feeling of being at a live performance of the trio.’
– JAZZjapan, (Japan), Jan 2015

‘From Darkness’ characterises the Avishai Cohen Trio. It is dynamic, exciting and suggestive, but also emotional, wistful and beautiful.’
– Smalanningen, (Sweden) Feb 2015

The Israeli bassist has become a real jazz star, and this is clear from the over-crowded concert room. Cohen, Daniel Dor (d) & Omri Mor (p) are a “well oiled machine”. Mor impresses with his virtuoso play, and technical delights. In the new “Nostalgia”, Avishai does something extra, besides dexterous patterns, he also looks at the space and mixes this with classical influences where he bows, instead of plucking.
No doubt this concert was the highlight of the evening!
