The forward-sounding 3 Cohens will braid horns and reeds with familial intensityFebruary 25, 2011
The three 30-something Israeli-born Cohen siblings, all on horns, will charm Portland audiences 2 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 26, at the Crystal Ballroom. The Afro-Semitic Experience, an eclectic sextet whose sound captures the music of the African and Jewish diaspora, will prime the stage.
As part of the Alaska Airlines/Horizon Air Portland Jazz Festival 2011, themed “Bridges and Boundaries: Jewish and African Americans Playing Jazz,” the 3 Cohens fit right in. They are part of an ultra-musical family whose chemistry works tunefully on and off stage.Highlighted, Press.
