Leading his trio with a command that belies his relative youth, 2019 American Pianists Awards winner Emmet Cohen is one of the hottest jazz pianists and composers to come on the scene in the past five years. Listen for traditional jazz sounds with a thoroughly modern flavor.
Mr. Cohen has appeared at the Gilmore Festival, as well as the Newport, Monterey, North Sea, Bern, Edinburgh, Detroit, and Jerusalem Jazz festivals, the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival and the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics in Russia. He is committed to the intergenerational transfer of the knowledge, history, and traditions of jazz. His signature undertaking is the “Masters Legacy Series,” a set of recordings and interviews honoring legendary jazz musicians that will allow musicians of multiple generations to share the unwritten folklore of America’s unique musical idiom.
