Emmet Cohen

Winner of the 2019 American Pianists Award and finalist in the 2011 Thelonious Monk International Piano Competition, the rising young virtuoso is known widely as a member of bass great Christian McBride’s Tip City and music director with vocal phenom Veronica Swift, along with his stellar work as a bandleader.

The 32-year-old Cohen became a Suzuki method piano student at three and released his 2011 debut In the Element while still enrolled at University of Florida’s Frost School of Music. He has accumulated over 15 awards and honors over his career, and created the acclaimed Masters Legacy Series of recordings and interviews in 2016 featuring collaboration with Ron Carter, Benny Golson, Albert “Tootie” Heath, and George Coleman. Cohen has been a member of the bands led by drumming luminaries Herlin Riley and Ali Jackson and hosted the wildly popular YouTube series Live From Emmet’s Place with his trio including bassist Russell Hall and drummer Kyle Poole and a procession of special guest vocalists and instrumentalists.
Cohen has led 10 albums including his 2021’s Mack Avenue debut Future Stride featuring Marquis Hill and Melissa Aldana, and his JHL engagement includes material from his new project, Uptown in Orbit with his masterful working band.
