Masterful bassist presents his thrilling trio
On the May '22 album Shifting Sands, this Israeli bassist reverts to the classic trio lineup. Cohen finds the ideal sparring partners in the amazing Guy Moskovich on piano and the fabulous, 21-year-old, drum sensation Roni Kapsi to take his melodic jazz to unprecedented heights. The album was consequently showered with positive reviews.
After collaborations with Chick Corea, Mark Guiliana and Seamus Blake, among others, Cohen has grown into one of the biggest names in jazz and this album marks a new phase in his 25-year career. It's guaranteed to be an exciting musical evening with the pleasure of playing and virtuosity bursting from the stage.
One of the most impressive things about this exceptional record is how much masterful mileage each member gets from a relatively small number of notes or beats. Top rank creativity, aptitude, and technique are some other things that make for musical success. There is an abundance of all that and more to be found in this new trio.' - All About Jazz
'Cohen at his best.' - De Volkskrant
'Cohen's vivacious bass improv and Shirinov's contrastingly imperturbable lyricism glow through this fine set - and if the new tunes add few surprises to the leader's signature songbook, the playing is incandescent.' - The Guardian
