Trumpeter Avishai Cohen - voted a Rising Star in the 2012 DownBeat Critics Poll - has earned renown as a musician with an individual sound and a questing spirit, an ever-creative player-composer open to multiple strains of jazz and active internationally as a leader, co-leader and sideman. The New York Times described him as "an assertive, accomplished trumpeter with a taste for modernism." Avishai played a headlining set at the 2011 Newport Jazz Festival, leading his bold, thrilling trio Triveni with double-bassist Omer Avital and drummer Nasheet Waits. Anzic Records will release the trio's second album, Triveni II - Avishai's sixth recording as a leader - in October 2012.
