Avishai Cohen

Biography

Fromwikipedia

Avishai Cohen Is a New York City–based jazz musician and composer originally from Tel Aviv, Israel.

Cohen was born in Tel Aviv, Israel. He grew up in a musical family with his saxophonist siblings: sister Anat Cohen and brother Yuval Cohen (soprano saxophone).[1] At the age of eight Avishai asked his mother if he could begin taking trumpet lessons.[1] At age ten, Avishai began playing with the Rimon Big Band, He recalls, "I had a box I stood on."[1] As a teenager Avishai toured with the Israeli Philharmonic Orchestra.[1]

Avishai Cohen attended the Berklee College of Music in Boston.[2] After graduating from Berklee, Cohen went on to win 3rd place in the Thelonious Monk jazz trumpet competition in 1997.[3] Cohen then moved to New York City where he began developing his music alongside Jason Lindner and bassist Omer Avital at Smalls Jazz Club.[3] He recorded his first album in 2003 with Anzic Records. The album title The Trumpet Player is titled such to avoid confusion with a jazz bassist of the same name (Avishai Cohen). Since then he has recorded with many notable jazz artists as a bandleader, co-leader, and composer[citation needed]. He has played with several jazz groups that include musicians from the SFJAZZ Collective. Cohen has stated that he was very heavily influenced by Miles Davis.[3] He is married and has two children.
