Avishai Cohen - the phenomenal young Israeli bassist/composer whose organic, acoustic bass anchors and propels Chick Corea's group "Origin" - presents Devotion. The follow-up to Cohen's stunning Stretch debut Adama - lauded as " of the strongest debuts in several years" (United Press International) and as "...auspicious not just for his career, but for jazz in general." (Jazziz) - Devotion finds the ever-inventive Cohen further developing an already distinctive, singular voice in creative music, as he seamlessly fuses the ethnic influences of his native land with polyrhythms and adventurous jazz improvisation. FEATURING: Avishai Cohen - acoustic & electric basses, piano, synthesizer, percussion Jason Lindner - paino Jimmy Greene - tenor saxophone, soprano saxophone & flute Steve Davis - trombone Amos Hoffman - guitar & oud Jeff Ballard - drums & percussion with string quartet (on track)
