Product Description

Avishai Cohen, one of the most innovative bassists and composers today, will release Gently Disturbed, his first release with his newly configured trio, from May on his own Razdaz Recordz label. While to outward appearances the trio would seem to be the standard piano-bass-drum formula, the music they've created on Gently Disturbed is far from the standard jazz trio repertoire. Featuring nine original compositions (written either by Cohen or by the trio collaboratively), including one traditional Israeli song, Gently Disturbed is an amalgamation of melody and groove, complexity and simplicity that nearly redefines the concept of jazz. With the departure of long-time pianist Sam Barsh, Cohen has slightly reconfigured his trio with the addition of Israeli pianist Shai Maestro. Since Cohen is an accomplished pianist in his own right and has performed on bass with such acclaimed jazz pianists as Danilo Perez, Brad Mehldau and of course Chick Corea, and because the previous keyboard players in his bands (Sam Barsh and Jason Lindner) have been exceptional, it is even more striking to note that Maestro is just 21 years old. Rounding out the trio is the brilliant Mark Guiliana on drums, who has been playing and touring with Cohen since 2003 and who Modern Drummer Readers Poll 2007 cited as "one of the best up-and-coming stars of today's drumming scene." Cohen's releases on Razdaz, which he founded with manager Ray Jefford in 2003, have consistently earned critical approbation, beginning with 2003's Lyla, followed by At Home in 2005, and through to 2006's critically acclaimed Continuo then followed by last year's Double Live CD/DVD release, As Is.Live At The Blue Note (Razdaz / Half Note).

5.0 out of 5 stars A higher level Sept. 1 2008
By Andrew Billek - Published on
Format: Audio CD
I kept seeing the name Avishai Cohen around so I thought I'd listen. A new world opened for me. Then two days ago I saw him at the Blue Note NYC(which turned out to be not that expensive after all). The difference between seeing him and hearing him is the difference between 6th heaven and 7th heaven. Not only has he begun to create a solid body of work but he is a consummate showman - he wins the audience over with his sincerity, modesty, and appreciation of his sidemen. His technique is awesome, the compositions (an amalgam of Bartok, mediteranean, latin, jazz and maximalism [the interesting version of minimalism]) are fresh and intriguing, and the group's cohesion is frightening. The new pianist who replaces Sam Barsh is fine, though I would have liked to see Barsh - see "As Is" the DVD for a view of this wonderful musician/entertainer. Now the drummer. The most visually exciting drummer I've ever seen AND the most musical. I can't imagine anyone being better (better is not the right word as music is not meant to be a competitive sport but language often fails).
All these words and I haven't even really mentioned the music. Well, you know what I'm gonna say! Buy all this guy's music. You won't regret it.
There is one thing. There always is! The music is very composed, arranged and rehearsed. While there is plenty of spontaneity I don't know how much of the music is improvised. I'd like to see Cohen in a trio where the pianist (someone other than Corea) calls the tunes and see what Avishai does. Avi the side man. Maybe that will be a future CD?

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Classic from Avishai Aug. 27 2008
By Sean Widlake - Published on
Format: Audio CD
This album is great! I love a lot about this album from the compositions which have a little classical influence in them to the percussion which was almost never the same between tracks. The pianist is also great from his runs to improvisation which seemed fresh when he was playing it (I hadn't heard his name before.) What I love the most about this album though would have to be Avishai's contribution to the tracks his bass playing is so incredible it made me smile because some of it was so ridiculously good. All in all i think this is a great addition to the modern jazz collection that Avishai is a big part of. Some of these tracks reminded me of another innovative jazz trio "The Bad Plus" whom i also love listening to. I highly recommend this album to any jazz listener or anyone interested in jazz.
PS sorry for my poorly constructed review

5.0 out of 5 stars Another lights out performance! July 3 2008
By Eric Booth - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Incredible! Another wonderfully masterful performance. I was first drawn to Avishai for his virtuosity but since then, he has turned into such an fantastic composer. His trio is ridiculously solid and the whole album, with all of its changes in pace and moods, is tight, tight, tight. Don't miss it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Interplay and Transition Playing Jan. 7 2009
By Matt H. Evans - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This CD was listed by Downbeat Magazine as one of the best jazz CD's for 2008. I would highly recommend it for those who enjoy hearing a jazz trio play mellow, flowing sets with nice transitions between the trio members. There is also outstanding "knowledge" by each trio member, realizing what the other member is trying to play and complimenting the music making the trio sound as one unit. Some of the bass playing by Avishai Cohen really stands out on Puncha Puncha and Variations in G Minor, reminding you of other great bass players such as Eddie Gomez (played with Bill Evans). Other songs such as Eleven Wives have a "Bad Plus" feel to them. So if you like Bad Plus, but wish you could find a more mellow and listenable Bad Plus, then this trio CD is a must for you. Overall, every song and the whole CD weave you in and out of great interplay and transition playing by three excellent musicians. An excellent CD.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing!!! Sept. 1 2008
By CB - Published on
Format: Audio CD
After seeing this trio at the Blue Note in New York, I was inspired to pick up this cd and actually ended seeing them again the next night. All I can say is that I can not stop listening to this cd!!!! All three members are incredible. Shai's subtle and deceivingly simple greatness compliments Avishai's upfront role as bandleader perfectly. Mark's drumming is awesome and original, steering clear of any sort of common drumbeat. All three sound great when soloing (which Avishai does most of), but since the band is basically just a rhythm section, they can groove really hard too!!! Honestly though, i can not say enough great things about this cd!!! Buy it!!
