-----
Israeli world bassist and composer Avishai Cohen returns to Stockholm along with a newly released record and new trio! This time for a unique concert in one of the most pleasing stages in the city, Berwaldhallen.

From the moment the Israeli bassist Avishai Cohen comes on stage, you feel an endless amount of energy, a rare stillness and a unique dynamic. Everything exists at the same time, enriched with an unflinching smile and a playfulness that you rarely encounter in music at this level. There are sparks coming from the music, you can almost see and feel them!

For over 20 years, the bassist, singer, composer and band leader Avishai Cohen has become one of the world's most esteemed musicians and composers. As a member of the Chick Corea trio, he was soon recognised globally and at the same time began touring in his own name and releasing proprietary music.

Avishai Cohen has created strong ties to Sweden over the years from his big breakthrough at the Stockholm Jazz & Blues Festival 2006 at Skeppsholmen to full club plays, concert halls and festivals. Now he releases the album Arvoles, the 17th album under his own name, recorded in his favourite studio Nilento in Gothenburg. Arvoles means trees in Ladino (an ancient language spoken by the Sephardic people from the diaspora) and the album is a fantastic proof of the musical signature Cohen worked out over the years, unique and lyrical jazz with great splashes of folk music from his home country but also from other parts of the world.
