Avishai Cohen Triveni

Event Date: 
Thursday, October 25, 2012 - 7:30pm

Avishai Cohen is a leading figure on the international jazz scene and one of the most sought-after trumpet players of his generation. Though deeply rooted in the bebop and post-bop tradition, Mr. Cohen is taking jazz in new directions, making waves as an improviser, composer, and bandleader.

Originally from Tel Aviv, he began performing at age 10. He toured the world with the Young Israeli Philharmonic Orchestra and went on to become the trumpet player of choice for many leading jazz, rock, pop, studio, and television projects.  

All of his diverse work, as a leader, co-leader, and sideman, is informed by this broad-minded legacy, which has given jazz new vitality and relevance in the 21st century. Avishai is a member of the prestigious SFJAzz Collective, which ranked at #5 top jazz band in 2010 DownBeat's Critic Poll. In 2012, Avishai won DownBeat Magazine's Critics Poll for Rising Star – Trumpet. Video Clip

"An extravangantly skilled trumpeter... relaxed and soulful...he deftly combined sensitivity and flair." - The New York Times
