He worked with many great musicians such as Bobby McFerrin, Herbie Hancock, Danilo Pérez, Roy Hargrove, Paquito D’Rivera, Alicia Keys, just to name a few, with the London Symphony Orchestra and the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra. He recently worked at his album Almah, which took Cohen’s career at higher level, celebrating it with an instrumental ensemble that combines a string quartet and an oboe to his trio. At present, Avishai Cohen is on a new world tour and will perform for Visioninmusica with the Avishai Cohen Trio to present the album From Darkness.
