3 Cohens & Gilad Hekselman Trio

Israel’s profile on the international jazz scene has exploded in recent years. Of this prodigiously talented group of transplants, three Tel-Aviv born siblings — Anat, Yuval and Avishai Cohen  have made an especially profound impact. Clarinetist and tenor player Anat has become a cause célèbre in jazz, winning multiple DownBeat Critics Polls, Readers Polls and Jazz Journalists Association Awards for her playing and composing. Soprano saxophonist Yuval has led a pair of acclaimed albums and in 2010 won the prestigious Landau Award for Jazz Performance. Trumpeter Avishai is a member of the SFJAZZ Collective and Third World Love. He is one of the most in-demand trumpet players in jazz and has recorded five acclaimed records as a leader, most recently Introducing Triveni. Working together as the 3 Cohens, the trio has released three CDs for the Anzic label, including their 2011 offering, Family.

 

Gilad Hekselman is a remarkable young guitarist who has recorded and performed with a host of established jazz veterans including Chris Potter, John Scofield, Gretchen Parlato, Aaron Parks, Sam Yahel and Jeff “Tain” Watts. He won the 2005 Gibson Montreaux International Guitar Competition and has issued three outstanding recordings, including 2011’s Hearts Wide Open, which was selected by The New York Times as one of the best jazz releases of the year. All in all, a phenomenal double-bill.
