With more than 20 years behind him as a double-bass player, vocalist, composer and group leader, Avishai Cohen has earned a place among the greatest bass players of our day and has made himself quite a name as a composer too. With his new Trio he will stage some recent compositions and arrangements, alongside signature numbers from recordings and past concerts. He is accompanied by one fresh talent – Elchin Shirinov, from Azerbaijan, a pianist and composer who takes his inspiration from the great musicians and has always wanted to become a jazz pianist. The other member of the trio is one of Cohen’s old friends, the drummer Noam David, who has played with him for many years, and whose creativity, style and complex ‘multirhythmic’ sound has substantially contributed to boosting the Israeli music scene. Some say that the stage is undoubtedly the place where Avishai Cohen feels most at home, and listening to one of his performances, live, is probably the best way of getting to know his musical universe.
