Avishai Cohen – Trumpet
Fabian Almazan – Piano
Barak Mori – Bass
Ziv Ravitz – Drums
When describing trumpeter Avishai Cohen, The Guardian said “every generation of jazz trumpeters revisits the legacy of Miles Davis in their own ways, but the Israeli rising star Avishai Cohen’s version of the journey has been particularly skillful.” In 2017, a year after his impressionistic, award winning, and critically-lauded ECM debut Into The Silence, Cohen’s sophomore release for ECM Cross My Palm With Silver introduced audiences to a new collection of pieces highlighting his exceptional quartet. The adroit interplay of Cohen’s live band featuring Fabian Almazan (piano), Barak Mori (bass), and Ziv Ravitz (drums), allows Cohen to soar, making it clear why the pure-toned trumpeter is one of the most talked-about jazz musicians on the contemporary scene.
“Avishai Cohen has rather quietly become one of the most creative trumpet players in jazz.“ – JazzTimes
