With his new album From Darkness, released in February 2015, Avishai Cohen comes back to the essence of its language, starting from his musician experience to conquer new horizons and new lands, towards a new creative and expressive dimension created in trio. “I felt it was the right moment to record in trio”, Avishai Cohen says, “because it is the first time since the album Gently Disturbed that I had the feeling I was reaching a truly new, fresh and incredibly substantial form.”
The unity of the three artists is so strong that Avishai Cohen states “in the trio there is such a form of equality that three become one”. Nitai Hershkovits has been filling the music of Avishai with grace since the album Duende (2012). Daniel Dor entered Avishai’s musical world in late 2013 and quickly managed to breathe new life into it. “Between them -Cohen says- a common, friendly space appeared that can only strengthen the moments we share: they take my music to places and perspectives that I had never suspected it would go.”
Avishai Cohen, born in Israel in 1970, is considered one of the best bass players of the world. His popularity worldwide comes from his musician talent and from his unique composition capacity, that gives originality to his pieces. After years of study and after moving in New York, in 1996 his musical career took off thanks to a collaboration with the famous American pianist Chick Corea.
Cohen reached the most important jazz festivals worldwide and, under Corea’s label Stretch Records, released his first four albums as a leader. He worked with many great musicians such as Bobby McFerrin, Herbie Hancock, Danilo Pérez, Roy Hargrove, Paquito D’Rivera, Alicia Keys, just to name a few, with the London Symphony Orchestra and the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra. He recently worked at his album Almah, which took Cohen’s career at higher level, celebrating it with an instrumental ensemble that combines a string quartet and an oboe to his trio. At present, Avishai Cohen is on a new world tour and will perform for Visioninmusica with the Avishai Cohen Trio to present the album From Darkness.
