Avishai Cohen Trio ‘From Darkness’ Playing Blue Note Jazz Festival…
“From Darkness is a strong release that showcases the band’s sensitivity and versatility… The Avishai Cohen trio has hit the mark with From Darkness.”
Melvin Smith, In Concert Magazine, March 2015
Avishai Cohen and his ‘From Darkness’ trio Nitai Hershkovits, (Piano) and Daniel Dor, (drums) will return to the US this summer for two dates in New York City on 29th and 30th June 2015, at 8PM. Accompanying him are two young talents from Israel. Nitai Hershkovits, the golden fingered pianist, has been filling the music of Avishai with grace since the (duet) album Duende (2012), a recording that has already highlighted his maestro in the acrobatic and demanding art. Adding to the surprises on stage is the very talented Daniel Dor who has recently been quoted as being ‘in a league of his own’, and ‘unstoppable.’ Daniel entered Avishai’s musical world in late 2013 and quickly managed to breathe new life into it.
The stage is undoubtedly a place where he feels at home so much so that attending one of his live performances is probably the best way to get acquainted with his musical universe.
“Nothing illustrates the mastery of bassist Avishai Cohen better than From Darkness … He casts notes, phrases and lines with imposing spirit, exemplifying an unbridled genius that can only exist in a rarefied realm.”
Raul da Gama, Jazz da Gama, April 2015
