Avishai Cohen – the phenomenal young Israeli bassist/composer whose organic, acoustic bass anchored and propelled Chick Corea’s group “Origin” – presents Devotion.

The follow-up to Cohen’s stunning Stretch debut Adama – lauded as “…one of the strongest debuts in several years” (United Press International) and as “…auspicious not just for his career, but for jazz in general.” (Jazziz) – Devotion finds the ever-inventive Cohen further developing an already distinctive, singular voice in creative music, as he seamlessly fuses the ethnic influences of his native land with polyrhythms and adventurous jazz improvisation.
