Avishai Cohen new album Almah

“This is an album that defines a new language which carries the genes of a
perfect synthesis between classical music and jazz, giving both the depth
and respect they deserve.”

Tal Hashiloni, Presenter and Broadcaster

‘…an outstanding display.’

Fria Tidningen, Sweden

It was crossover and then some, and Cohen looks like he’s going a long way with it.

The Guardian, John Fordham, UK

Since May this year Avishai has been touring with his new strings project, performing new compositions and arrangements from Almah to thousands of people. Thanks to everyone who made it to a show – you really made each one very special!

Avishai is very pleased to share with you his new and latest creation, ‘Almah’, which has just been *released.

With “Almah”, his fourteenth album as leader, Avishai has gone back to the roots of his first musical experience: classical writing and harmony. The jazzman has never stopped proclaiming this enlightened heritage throughout a career that is colourful and steeped in all kinds of experiences. But he is taking this to new heights by celebrating it this time with an instrumental ensemble that brings together his trio (the pianist Nitai Hershkovits and the drummer Ofri Nehemya), a string quartet and an oboe.

Avishai Cohen

Dear Avishia,
Thank you soo much for your gift of music to all. I discovered your music through I-Tunes, and havn’t stopped listening since. You and your music are a breath of fresh air,considering what else is out there lately. Some day I hope to see you tour the states. America could use someone such as yourself to show them a new direction in music. I’m playing you music to everyone I can to help spread your sound. My son also likes your trio work, he’s 14 . Again thanks so much and God bless you and yours.

Ken Schaefer,
Music educator/percussionist
