Avishai Cohen Trio – Nice Jazz Festival
Sunday, July 17th 2022
Théâtre de Verdure – 10:30 PM
A few months ago, the Israeli double bassist Avishai Cohen released his symphonic album “Two Roses” the “project of a lifetime” he will say himself. Following this album crowned with success and reviewed in more than a hundred magazines around the world, Avishai Cohen returns to the jazz trio and makes his comeback with a dazzling formation: Elchin Shirinov, still on piano and on drums , the arrival of young Roni Kaspi, an exceptional musician who joined the group on tour in the summer of 2021. This new album “Shifting Sands”, recorded in August 2021 and released in May 2022 on the naïve label , reconnects with the very special alchemy that makes the charm of Avishai Cohen’s music: great melodic lines, diverse and sought-after rhythms and a very special musical elegance that belongs only to him.
