12 Songs, 45 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

Israeli jazz bassist Avishai Cohen has long chafed at genre limitations, prioritizing his eclectic writing over the simple flaunting of monster chops. With 1970, Cohen makes his biggest departure, singing an entire album of songs, often of love and heartbreak, with a distinctly pop and rock flavor. The touchstones are broader, however: Cohen’s great love of gospel and soul, Latin, Jewish, and other music comes through. And when he does decide to feature the bass, he does not hold back.

Beautiful, and different!

It’s inspiring to follow Avishai’s various artistic forays, and while he continues to surprise, this album is filled with the same soul and beauty that has drawn me to all of his music. Get it!

Amazing

As with every previous release Avishai has created, 1970 is just as amazing!!!! Fresh, creative, a pleasant change in direction.

Actually his second full album singing, this one is in English not Hebrew, consists of story telling with each song progressing from the last to tell a story of love, life, and everything in-between!!! Mixed with traditional Hebrew songs and one amazing Latin tune, this album has become my go to album to play this month and I know many more months to come!!!
