First review not fair to artist Aug. 13 2006
By S. Goldenberg - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I'm writing this review because I feel that S. Crabb's opinion is unjustified. Avishai Cohen is a great composer who tends to use vamps and grooves more often than the typical acoustic jazz musician but certainly not as often as Crabb conveyed in his review. The album hardly feels monotonous or repetitive.

His compositions have a poetic simplicity and creative elegance that is lacking in a lot of modern jazz music. As a bass player, Cohen makes no effort to overshadow the other members of his trio. Oudist Amos Hoffman makes several appearances on the album, adding to Cohen's trademark Middle Eastern sound.

This is certainly not Cohen's best work. Give that prize to his second solo album "Colors." It is quite clear that a larger ensemble serves as a better vehicle for his work. Continuo is a fine album worth the $11 though.

Continuo Feb. 19 2007
By P. Freeman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
In his latest album "Continuo," Avishai Cohen displays virtuosic bass playing and a series of filthy awesome compositions. Although I see where the reviewer who complained of over-repetiveness is coming from, I disagree. Yes, the themes in the songs are repeated, but they change each time in arrangement, tone, and resolution and every single song has quality improvisation.

Sam Barsh (piano), Mark Guiliana (drums, percussion), and Amos Hoffman (oud) all demonstrate remarkable lyricism, deft skill, and incredible musicianship in handling Cohen's twisting time signatures and powerful rhythmic phrases.

Also, the compositions in this CD have some of the most emotionally powerful (sometimes almost pump-upish, sections in any music I've ever heard. The music is always accesible and beautiful, but never at the expense of depth and integrity of composition.

Every single track on this CD is top quality. I highly recommend it.

Continuo Jan. 4 2007
By Alan C. Iannacito - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
There will be no strife in the world if we could all sit back and listen to the poetry of "Continuo."

I had to go to Amazon just to find Avishai Cohen, the new heavy-hitter of jazz bass and an exceptional composer.

Listen to Avishai Cohen's compositions played on his accoustic and electric basses with Sam Barch on the piano, Mark Guiliana, drums and percussion -- and get this, Amos Hoffman on the oud.

The oud, a mideastern stringed instrument, has the exotic pluck of all that is good about the world.

"Continuo," is a world of wonderful listening. Cohen's other CD in my Collection, "Colors" is another marvel.

Wonderful. Aug. 23 2006
By R. Amit - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Wonderful album, my Avishai Cohen's favorite so far. All together, and each one by himself - a great pleasure, specially with the wonderful Amos Hoffman joining with his Oud.

A Great CD Dec 17 2006
By Yaron Zakai-or - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is one of the only contemporary CDs that make it to my CD after 3-4 times. It's melodic yet full of energy. The Oud plays an important part in making this something that sounds different, Middle Eastern.
