[Avishai] Cohen is part of the musical family from Israel that has become well known in the jazz world in recent years. His older sister, Anat Cohen, is renowned for her prowess on the clarinet and her strong presence on tenor sax. His older brother, Yuval Cohen, is an outstanding saxophonist who is also raising eyebrows. As the SFJAZZ Collective tour wound down, Avishai said the family group, the 3 Cohens, is a project that has grown organically over time and will get very active in the coming months.

“The 3 Cohens, we’re putting a lot of focus on it this year,” says the trumpeter. “We played Brazil. And Canada. We had a European tour in January. We played Portland.” The siblings also played in New York and Boston in April and will be recording again soon, as well as touring in Australia in June. “The reaction we’re getting this year is absolutely fantastic and exciting. It’s so nice to have that project. To have this element. It’s a unique situation I’m getting to appreciate more and more, as my life goes on. A tour with my brother and my sister. We stay on stage, we play, have fun, joke around and get paid for it,” he says, laughing fondly. “Doing what we love doing.”
