Info for Arvoles
‘Arvoles’ (‘Trees’ in the ancient Ladino-language).
Full of original instrumental compositions, and one traditional song written over the last couple of years. The music’s been clearly identified with his own unique and defining DNA. “It’s impossible to escape from myself, even if I would want to.” And so his dynamic influences remain. There are traces of classical music and Afro-Caribbean rhythms. There’s bebop and hard bop, swing and hiphop. But with every new album his own personality shines through more emphatically. ‘Recorded with his core trio, drummer Noam David (Israel) and pianist Elchin Shirinov (Azerbaijan) both magnificent musicians and composers in their own right. ‘’Most of these compositions seem to deal with looking back. There’s even horns in there, Björn Samuelsson (trombone) and Anders Hagberg (flute) which I hadn’t included in my writing for some time. You could say I’m going back to basics, but with the maturity and vision that the last couple of decades have brought me. Nostalgia at its best is the strongest, most romantic, sincere, bitter-sweet feeling. And I agree it’s all over the record, with compositions like ‘Childhood’, ‘New York ‘90’s’ and ‘Nostalgia’.
I had the happiest of childhoods, and I’m very proud I could include one of my mother’s paintings on the front cover of the album. She’s an artist in her own right, and it just made things come a full circle.
And so once again Avishai Cohen is able to present us with a masterful chapter, full of spirit, joy, and the pure pleasure of playing and listening together.

born in Israel in 1970, is considered one of the best bass players of the world. His popularity worldwide comes from his musician talent and from his unique composition capacity, that gives originality to his pieces. After years of study and after moving in New York, in 1996 his musical career took off thanks to a collaboration with the famous American pianist Chick Corea.
Cohen reached the most important jazz festivals worldwide and, under Corea’s label Stretch Records, released his first four albums as a leader.
He worked with many great musicians such as Bobby McFerrin, Herbie Hancock, Danilo Pérez, Roy Hargrove, Paquito D’Rivera, Alicia Keys, just to name a few, with the London Symphony Orchestra and the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra. He recently worked at his album Almah, which took Cohen’s career at higher level, celebrating it with an instrumental ensemble that combines a string quartet and an oboe to his trio. At present, Avishai Cohen is on a new world tour and will perform for Visioninmusica with the Avishai Cohen Trio to present the album From Darkness.
