Avishai Cohen - Seven Seas (Monday 15th October - Wednesday 17th October )

On his last trio album, Gently Disturbed, the ultimate work released on the label he founded (Razdaz Recordz) prior to signing with Blue Note, Avishai Cohen wrapped up, as it were, the musical banquet with a piece called Structure in Emotion – a melody he is especially fond of since it already featured on his first record released by his own outfit in 2003, Lyla.

Avishai Cohen’s music delivers a torrent of emotion(s), the structure of the pieces, their intimate architecture, springs surprises, taking unexpected turns, rather like a melodious, pacific, salutary time bomb. His compositions keep emotion in check to let it blossom, to avoid the energy fizzling out before reaching the listener. With Seven Seas, this native of Jerusalem now established in Tel Aviv, now one of the most popular jazz players of the past decade, takes his artistic approach to its zenith.
