Brand new groove-orientated project from this acclaimed Israeli contrabassist

The very first jazz album was released 100 years ago: The Original Dixieland Jass Band with ‘Livery Stable Blues’. That’s why AB will be paying extra attention to jazz for a year. From contemporary classics to musical troublemakers who are inspired by jazz, to the latest incredibly headstrong jazz generation from local soil.

Brand new project from this idolized Israeli contrabassist, whereby – as if that wasn’t already the case – the groove is situated 100% front and centre. Noteworthy: Cohen will lead his band from behind the Fender Rhodes (!), though he won’t leave his most loyal partner – the contrabass – untouched.

Jazz tout court, contrabassists (of course!) & JAZZ 100 lovers. But especially for jazz adepts with an open mind.

‘Bassist/componist Avishai Cohen zijn buitengewone techniek en ongewone manier om de akoestische bas te bespelen, maken hem tot een fenomeen in de jazz en ver daarbuiten. Hij tokkelt, plukt, strijkt en slaat op zijn instrument terwijl hij er zich omheen kronkelt als een boa constrictor om haar prooi. In zijn composities weet hij moeiteloos westerse en oosterse invloeden te versmelten tot een heel persoonlijke stijl.’  (De Standaard)

Avishai Cohen performed in AB for the first time in 2011
