3 COHENS

Braid

2007-11-30

Fantastic. Simply fantastic. The 3 Cohens paint a masterpiece of jazz using the same canvas on which Miles Davis spoke so eloquently in "Kind of Blue." Award winning tenor saxophonist Anat Cohen teams up with her brothers, Avishai on trumpet and Yuval on soprano sax, to offer a three-horn front in a classic sextet ensemble. Drawing from Brazilian and classical studies only enhances this 10-song feature. Virtuosity, discipline and great homage pepper the nine original compositions for this must-have for any jazz enthusiast. If you like 1950's era John Coltrane, Art Blakey, or any of the other jazz giants, this new offering holds its own among the best of the best. - Daniel J. Graeber
