It’s A Jazz Family Affair
By Nick Morrison

Summer is a time for family gatherings. Over the years, there have been some very notable families of jazz musicians. Here, then, are five songs by some of those talented families ‘” songs selected to accompany your own family’s summer get-togethers. So bring on the relatives, fire up the back-yard grill and hit play. Make it a family affair.

3 Cohens
Anat, Avishai and Yuval Cohen were born in Tel-Aviv, but can now be found frequently in New York, where they perform together and, individually, with a variety of groups. Clarinetist/saxophonist Anat was the first of the siblings to gain national attention with her debut CD in 2005. Her brothers, Avishai (trumpet) and Yuval (saxophone), were close behind. “U-Valley,” a song that hints at Latin and Eastern influences, was written by Anat and allows all three soloists to shine. The other members of the group include Aaron Goldberg (piano), Omer Avital (bass) and Eric Harland (drums).
