Info for Joys And Solitudes

Der israelisch-französische Pianist Yonathan Avishai hat wichtige Beiträge zur Musik von Avishai Cohen geleistet, dokumentiert auf dessen Alben Into The Silence und Cross My Palm With Silver. Im Laufe der letzten fünf Jahre hat er mit dem in Paris lebenden israelischen Bassisten Yoni Zelnik und dem aus Griechenland stammenden Donald Kontomanou am Schlagzeug sein eigenes Trio-Projekt entwickelt.

Zuweilen bekannt als Modern Times Trio, eröffnet die Gruppe ihr Album mit Duke Ellingtons "Mood Indigo". In den folgenden Eigenkompositionen bezieht sich Yonathan Avishai auf ein breites Spektrum an Musiken und Erfahrungen: "Les Pianos de Brazzaville" ruft seine Reisen in die Republik Kongo in Erinnerung, "Tango" gibt eine spielerische Antwort auf Dino Saluzzis und Anja Lechners Ojos Negros, "When Things Fall Apart" wurde von Avishai Cohen inspiriert. Diese vielfältigen Einflüsse werden durch Yonathans traditionsbewusstes Klavierspiel gefiltert, respektvoll gegenüber den Werten von Blues und Swing und doch eigenständig in seiner Entschlossenheit und Präzision.

Joys and Solitudes wurde im Februar 2018 in Lugano aufgenommen, im Auditorio Stelio Molo RSI, und von Manfred Eicher produziert.

Yonatan Avishai
One of the most talented musician from the new Israeli jazz scene, French-Israeli piano player Yonathan Avishai's talent was first discovered through the band Third World Love that he cofounded with trumpet player Avishai Cohen, bass player Omer Avital and drummer Daniel Freedman (five albums). Born and raised in Tel Aviv, he often accompanied touring American musicians such as Walter Blanding Jr. and Marcus Printup and was part of Arnie Lawrence's Ensemble. He is currently living in France. A regular member of the Omer Avital Quintet, he often performs with the band The Three Cohens.

"Yonathan is one of those rare musicians who are totally unpredictable... He always gives the feeling that he is completely free and able to approach everything he plays as a game." (Yaron Herman, pianist)

"Yonathan is one of my favorite musicians alive, and his voice needs to be heard. His music is deep and soulful, different than anything you might have heard. Please support by donating and sharing this." (Avishai Cohen, trumpeter)
