Lots of young pianists have chops and energy, but Cohen also has an instinct for meaningful aesthetic form. His spilling runs and chiming resolutions are necessary to an overall design.

                                            — Thomas Conrad, Jazz Times

Cohen’s playing springs from tradition. Favoring swinging phrasing and concise melodic arcs colored by rich harmonic vocabulary, the tasteful pianist never lets his nimble, cleanly articulated technique overflow into clutter. His music’s uplifting attitude is frequently colored with wit.

                                                     — Jeff Potter, Downbeat

Emmet Cohen - piano

Russell Hall - bass

Kyle Poole - drums


Harlem based piano phenom, Emmet Cohen, swings through town with his all-star trio featuring Late Show with Stephen Colbert’s bassist, Russell Hall, and drummer Evan Sherman, recently on tour with Wynton Marsalis.  

 

The trio is known for its range and uplifting dynamism, representing Cohen’s “kaleidoscopic sense of musical narrative,” as noted in Downbeat Magazine’s current edition.

 

Audience members can expect to be treated to a master class in stylistic juxtapositions, including the melding of stride, blues, church, swing, bebop, free, and contemporary styles, resulting in the innovative sound of Jazz’s future.
