It’s one of the most exciting projects of 2016. Having alternated bubbling underground and swing projects, the trumpeter Avishai Cohen now shows up with the repertoire of his enchanting new album, Into the Silence. For his debut on the prestigious ECM label, Avishai Cohen has assembled a quartet of great subtlety to serve up an intense, unique, suspenseful music. Shades of Miles Davis are never far away: we close our first evening with a moment of weightlessness with this trumpet great.
Line-up: Avishai Cohen: trumpet / Bill McHenry: sax / Yonathan Avishai: piano / TBC: double bass / Nasheet Waits: drums
Album : Into the Silence – ECM
