3 Cohens


3 Cohens

The 3 Cohens sextet is a unique phenomenon not only on the Israeli jazz scene, but on the global jazz scene as well.
The horn section consists of three siblings: two brothers and a sister. Yuval, the oldest brother, plays the soprano saxophone, Avishai plays the trumpet, and Anat, their sister, plays the tenor saxophone and the clarinet.

The 3 Cohens, all Berklee College of Music graduates, have been performing for years as bandleaders and sidemen in New York, Boston, Israel and internationally.

They are finally bringing their individual sounds & musicianship together for a collective musical adventure.
Their latest project is a tribute to Louis Armstrong that debuted at the Caesaria Jazz Festival in early 2005. Their original music received outstanding reviews at the Tel Aviv Jazz Festival – 2004, while playing in New York City in 2003, and during their tour in Poland – 2002. Their debut CD, “One”, was released in 2004 and was featured in JAZZIZ Magazine – October 2004.

The 3 Cohens perform with a rhythm section made up of New York City’s finest musicians but can also be featured as an a cappella trio, creating an intimate and dynamic concert of these stunning instrumentalists.

The 3 Cohens are also available for master classes for musicians as well as a discussion about their personal journey as Israeli’s in the jazz world.

“Our childhood was very different from the usual childhood stories. The three of us shared a special love for music, it was what bonded our unique relationship and allowed us to experience a childhood that most siblings don’t enjoy. Through music we share an emotional and spiritual connection that goes beyond our familial ties. It is beyond words and imagination.”
