Avishai Cohen Trio
Avishai Cohen – Bass and Vocals
Omri Mor – Piano
Itamar Doari – Percussion
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.”
