2017 will see Avishai Cohen performing with a new band and new music.
Avishai Cohen’s “Jazz Free” is a new project conveying some of the spirit of his next album (scheduled for release in September 2017 – Sony Music).
The live show is destined to provide a more groove based sound where Cohen will lead the band on his familiar and faithful partner, his bass, and lead vocals.
Avishai will be joined by an exceptional group of musicians who are not known as ‘jazz musicians’. His partners are Yael Shapira (acoustic/ electric cello and vocals), Elyasaf Bishari (oud, bass/electric guitar and vocals), Itamar Doari (percussion and vocals), Jonatan Daskal (keyboards) and Tal Kohavi (drums).
Avishai is renowned for stretching the boundaries of jazz in a different direction to find a unique and plentiful sound. As is common with his distinctive music, original melodies and songs, you will be sure to experience a multitude of influences.
