“Trumpeter Avishai Cohen’s ECM debut, 2016’s Into the Silence, is a ruminative, elegiac album far — if not completely — removed from the kinetic, aggressive post-bop of his 2014 effort, Dark Nights. As with all ECM releases, Into the Silence was produced by label founder Manfred Eicher and, as such, fits nicely into the catalog next to works by the late trumpeter Kenny Wheeler and others. In some ways, Cohen’s move toward a more classical, ambient sound makes sense, as he is recording material specifically with the ECM stylistic tradition in mind. Sadly, Cohen also composed these songs in the wake of his father’s death, and the trumpeter’s grief seems to permeate everything on Into the Silence.”
