Avishai Cohen Trio [Cancelled]

SIMA is proud to present world renowned bassist, Avishai Cohen’s debut performance in Australia to celebrate the release of his latest trio album ‘Shifting Sands’.

Avishai Cohen, born in Kabri, Isreal, grew up in a multicultural family with roots from Spain, Greece and Poland. A house filled with music spanning numerous genres and nationalities, influenced Avishai’s evolution to becoming one of the world’s most heralded bassists and composers. He mesmerizes audiences worldwide with works that merge and embrace American jazz, Latin music, Sephardic-Jewish folk songs, orchestral works, and even pop-tinged vocals.

The latest album ‘Shifting Sands’, created during the pandemic, is the opposite of an isolation album but a celebration of music making and interaction. It’s bursting with a joyful energy with animated improvisation, that is only possible when a group are connected spiritually and musically.

Referring to his landmark album of 2008 ‘Gently Disturbed’, Cohen says “I now have a trio where that kind of magic is happening again …Elchin Shirinov from Azerbaijan is a magnificent pianist in his own right, and drummer Roni Kaspi, although only 21, is an exceptional talent with a new spirit that brings her own strong personality.”

This trio’s performance will be truly unforgettable, evoking a nostalgia that’ll remind you why you fell in love with jazz in the first place.
