Arvoles ... CD Sunnyside, 2019. New Copy ...
Bassist AvishaiCohen never fails to delight our ears – he's always got ways of opening things up past the usual – keeping his instrument upfront, and in a very personal placement on a recording – while also encouraging the others to really bring their best ideas into play! Here, the core is a piano trio – with Elchi Shirinov on the keys and Noam David on drums – already working in these really fresh rhythmic combinations with Cohen, then exploding with color when augmented by the flute of Anders Hagberg and trombone of Bjorn Samuelsson! Most of the album's tunes are Cohen originals, filled with life and fire – and titles include "New York 90s", "Simonero", "Face Me", "Gesture #2", and "Childhood". CD
