Talented 3 Cohens make jazz a family affair
In new album, Israeli horn players forge unique group sound
In jazz, sharing parentage offers no guarantee that musical siblings will work harmoniously together. But in the case of the 3 Cohens, familial ties have surmounted distance, career ambitions, and other potential obstacles. At the forefront of a torrent of Israeli jazz talent that has poured into New York City over the past two decades, the 3 Cohens have forged a sound built upon a selfless love of blending their instrumental voices. They perform Thursday at Scullers and Friday at Rockwood’s Shalin Liu Performance Center.
