Primary Instrument: Band/ensemble/orchestra
The 3Cohen Siblings, Yuval, Anat and Avishai, have had a very similar musical path. Growing up in Tel-Aviv under the same roof, attending the same day schools and the same music Conservatory in the afternoons, have helped shape their musical taste, approach and ideas.
They Attended the Tel-Aviv School for the Arts, the Thelma Yalin high school for the arts and the Jaffa Music conservatory.
The 3Cohens had a classical music background that included some symphonic orchestral playing. But it didn't take long before the 3 discovered their life long love to jazz music.
And then there was Berklee College of Music. The World Scholarship Tour awarded the 3 of them scholarships the attend Berklee. The 3 got to expand their musical taste and to develop themselves musically at the College and after graduating. In November 2002 the 3 formed a sextet and performed in a jazz festival in Poland, playing their original music. That was the beginning of their debut album, ONE.
Since then, the 3 Siblings have been performing as often as possible. their concerts include performances in the Lodz Jazz festival (Poland, 2003) the Tel-Aviv Jazz festival (2004), Caesarea Jazz party � in a special program of the music of Louis Armstrong (2005), NYC (2006) and the Givatayim Jazz festival in Israel (2005, 2006 and 2007).
The remarkable story of 3 Cohens, continues with the release of Braid (2007, Anzic Records). It is obvious that the Cohens would have some sort of telepathy and symbiosis on the bandstand and in the studio, but the level of interplay and musical cooperation that exists between the siblings on Braid can only be described as astounding. Their individual virtuosity, creativity and exceptional taste only serve to enhance the music that primarily stems from their mutual respect and love for one another, as family, and as musicians.
