3 Cohens to Release Family on October 11, 2011

The best jazz groups are made up of kindred spirits, but the rare family band has something more ‘” an intuitive feel for each other that goes beyond words and gestures to a kind of bred-in-the-bone telepathy. The 3 Cohens are that sort of uncommon collective, a trio of siblings from Tel Aviv, Israel ‘” tenor saxophonist/clarinetist Anat Cohen, trumpeter Avishai Cohen and soprano saxophonist Yuval Cohen ‘” whose sense of improvisational interplay is both uncannily fluent and wonderfully, infectiously warm. Along with performing on stages the world over, The 3 Cohens have three studio albums to their credit: One (2004), Braid (2007) and Family (released October 11, 2011, via Anzic Records). Like the widely praised Braid, the new Family was recorded in Brooklyn, and the disc features the three Israeli horn players in league with a swinging New York rhythm section: pianist Aaron Goldberg, double-bassist Matt Penman and drummer Gregory Hutchinson. Family underscores the fact that even with the individual careers each of the Cohens pursue to increasing international success, there is something special about the music the three make together.
