Shlomi Cohen Shlomi Cohen

Grammy-nominated saxophonist Shlomi Cohen, born in Tel Aviv, Israel, has had a multicultural musical education, based in part on his surroundings both in Tel Aviv and New York City, and also from his Moroccan and Yemeni heritage.

This mix of styles in his sound has made him a much sought-after saxophonist.

Shlomi was part of the Grammy-nominated album “Frutero Moderno” by Gonzalo Grau & La Clave Secreta.

He is part of a special collaboration with Colombian Harpist Edmar Castaneda, bringing this incredible and unique form of music to the world.

As an integral part of the horn section Shlomi is playing with the Bernie Worrell Orchestra (founding member of Parliament-Funkadelic).

Shlomi is based in New York City and regularly collaborates with various musical projects around the city and beyond.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
