Info for Cross My Palm with Silver

Ein Jahr nach seinem von der Kritik gefeierten ECM-Debüt "Into The Silence" stellt der Trompeter Avishai Cohen auf "Cross My Palm With Silver" ein Programm aus neuen Stücken vor, bei denen der Fokus ganz auf dem Teamwork seines Ensembles liegt, eines Quartetts allererster Güte. Das flinke, fast schon telepathische Zusammenspiel der Musiker erlaubt Avishai Höhenflüge, die deutlich machen, warum er einer der am stärksten beachteten Jazzmusiker der gegenwärtigen Szene ist.

"Diese Leute stellen mein Dream Team dar", sagt der charismatische Trompeter über seine Mitspieler Yonathan Avishai, Barak Mori und Nasheet Waits, die sowohl seinen Sinn für kühne Improvisation als auch sein Gefühl für Struktur teilen. Wie schon der Vorgänger "Into The Silence" wurde auch "Cross My Palm With Silver" von Manfred Eicher in den Studios La Bissonne in Südfrankreich produziert. Es erscheint am Vorabend einer größeren Europatournee mit Konzerten in Deutschland, Frankreich, Italien, Spanien, Luxemburg, dem Vereinigten Königreich, der Schweiz und den Niederlanden.

Avishai Cohen
For four years running, Cohen has been voted a Rising Star-Trumpet in the DownBeat Critics Poll. Along with leading his Triveni trio with Omer Avital and Nasheet Waits, thetrumpeter was a member of the SF Jazz Collective for six years. He also records and tours the world with The 3 Cohens Sextet, the hit family band with his sister, clarinetist-saxophonist Anat, and brother, saxophonist Yuval. Declared All About Jazz: “To the ranks of the Heaths of Philadelphia, the Joneses of Detroit and the Marsalises of New Orleans, fans can now add the 3 Cohens of Tel Aviv.”

The trumpeter began performing in public in 1988 at age 10, playing his first solos with a big band and eventually touring with the Young Israeli Philharmonic Orchestra to perform under the likes of maestros Zubin Mehta, Kurt Masur and Kent Nagano. Having worked with Israeli folk and pop artists in his native country and appeared on television early on, Cohen arrived as an experienced professional musician when he took up a full scholarship at Berklee College of Music in Boston. In 1997, the young musician established an international reputation by placing third in the Thelonious Monk Jazz Trumpet Competition. Avishai came of age as a jazz player as part of the fertile scene at the club Smalls in New York’s West Village.

Cohen first recorded for ECM as part of saxophonist Mark Turner’s quartet on Lathe of Heaven, released in September 2014. The trumpeter has performed at the Village Vanguard and beyond with Turner, as well as widely in a band led by pianist Kenny Werner. Cohen has played often in the Mingus Big Band and Mingus Dynasty ensemble, and he has lent his horn to recordings by Anat Cohen, Yuval Cohen and keyboardist Jason Lindner, along with collaborating on stage and in the studio with French-Israeli pop singer Keren Ann. In addition to performing, Cohen was named the Artistic Director of the International Jerusalem Festival in 2015.

“Cohen is a multicultural jazz musician, among whose ancestors is Miles Davis. Like Davis, he can make the trumpet a vehicle for uttering the most poignant human cries.” – Ben Ratliff, The New York Times
