Joe Cohn

Joe Cohn was fated to a life in music by his antecedents and early exposure to the greatest musicians and composers, Joe, son of legendary saxophonist Al Cohn and vocalist Marylin Moore, has steadily risen to the fore and made his mark as one of the most inventive and catalytic guitarists in jazz. Joe emerged from his years at the Berklee School of Music in the late 70s as a multi-instrumentalist, and is no less impressive on trumpet. His work on guitar is consistently applauded and favorably reviewed. His professional experience as a guitarist is of the first order. He has toured and played with groups led by his father, Al Cohn (1979-87, including Europe), Freddy Cole (touring Brazil), Bob Mover, Nick Brignola, Artie Shaw, Zoot Sims, Buddy DeFranco (ongoing), Al Grey (ongoing), Warren Chiasson (ongoing), Carmine Leggio (ongoing), Claude “Fiddler” Williams (ongoing) and, of course, Harry Allen. On the New York City jazz club and concert scene, he has played the famous Blue Note with Al Cohn, Artie Shaw and Al Grey, Fat Tuesday’s and Sweet Basil with Al Grey, the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion with Artie Shaw and Lincoln Center with Hank Jones and Wynton Marsalis. On the international scene, he has played the Oslo Jazz Festival with Frank Wess, has played the annual jazz cruise on board the SS Norway with Al Grey, and wowed them at the Lionel Hampton Club in Paris with Duffy Jackson.
