The 3 Cohens' new recording is a powerful acknowledgement of the importance of Family. Although Yuval, Anat and Avishai are perennially busy with numerous projects that make up their individual careers, the remarkable story of the 3 Cohens continues with the release of their new recording, Family (the follow up to the much-lauded Braid), available on Anzic Records now. Joining Yuval, Anat and Avishai on Family is a trio of unparalleled musicians, Aaron Goldberg on piano, Matt Penman on bass and Gregory Hutchinson on drums. Plus, very special guest, Jon Hendricks, delivering his singular style to “On The Sunny Side of Street," and “Roll 'Em Pete."

The virtuosity and creativity of each of the Cohens serves the music well, of course, but the real treat on this album are the incredibly joyous conversations and interactions that could only sprout from their mutual respect and love for one another. The 3 Cohens' childhood was very different from the usual stories. They shared a special love for music; it was what solidified their unique relationship and allowed them to experience a childhood that most siblings aren't privy to. “Through music, we share an emotional and spiritual connection that goes beyond our familial ties. It is beyond words and the imagination," explained Anat.

When the 3 Cohens converged in the studio for the recording of Family, they did so with a fervent dedication to making music together, and a strong desire to celebrate life and family through their music. They explain, “every time we play again it is so special. For us, sharing a stage is not just three siblings who play together; it is also a constant reminder of the gift of life. That's why we have decided to have this band." The results are two brilliant recordings, One, and Braid, and now their newest, and perhaps their greatest work together, the celebratory, Family (on Anzic Records, rel date October 11, 2011).

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
