Israeli jazz trumpeter visits


On May 22, jazz trumpeter Avishai Cohen led a clinic for Webster Groves High School music students  as part of Jazz St. Louis’ Emerson Jazz in Schools program.  His band, Avishai Cohen’s Triveni, was in town for a pair of shows at Jazz at the Bistro. Cohen, a New York City-based jazz musician originally from Tel Aviv, also records and tours the world as part of the SFJazz Collective and the 3 Cohens Sextet–the family band with his sister, clarinetist-saxophonist Anat, and brother, saxophonist Yuval.
