Avishai Cohen

Avishai Cohen is not only a world class bass player, he is also an exceptionally gifted composer and singer.

Cohen has reached his own star in the international music scene: He is capable of selling-out the Olympia in Paris with 2000 seats twice in less than a year, get overwhelming reactions in Montreux Festival and other main international stages, selling more than 200 CDs after a club show in Ancienne Belgique and sell out the prestigious big hall at Wiener Konzerthaus weeks in advance.

As recent stellar performances at the world’s major venues have shown Israeli double-bassist-composer-vocalist Avishai Cohen is at the peak of his creative powers. Cohen plays and sings magnificently, and often gives vent to his love of melody as well as the art of improvisation. Cohen’s new album 1970 highlights the more accessible side of his talent without compromising his artistic integrity. “It’s not a jazz record,” he explains. “I don’t know what it is, but I’ve always had a connection to pop. I like pop as much as I like Bach and Charlie Parker. Singing has become very serious in my life over time. I’ve been asked by many people, when is the vocal album gonna come? Well, this is it, right here.”
