Overview

Avishai Cohen contributed all ten selections to Continuo, originals that are often influenced by Middle Eastern music. Cohen's bass dominates throughout, easily taking the most solo space. His trio with pianist Sam Barsh and drummer Mark Guilliana is tight, often being joined by Amos Hoffman on oud. The music is atmospheric, sometimes introspective, touched strongly by Western classical music and spontaneous in spots. Lovers of Avishai Cohen's bass solos will want this set although others will wish that there were more variety in frameworks and instrumentation.

Editorial Reviews

The Guardian - John Fordham
There are some memorable themes, and much fine spontaneous playing from Cohen and his partners.
