Israeli jazz bassist, composer, singer and arranger Avishai Cohen will perform with his trio in Yerevan on May 31.The concert will be held at the Aram Khachatryan Concert Hall.

The stage is undoubtedly a place where Avishai feels at home, his critics say.

Today Avishai Cohen talked to journalists in Yerevan.

“I shall present my favourite works to the Armenian audience but the most important thing is that I shall improvise while playing and I do not even know myself what I am going to perform. I listen to different kinds of music and I get inspired. My desire to make changes in music is accounted for it,” Mr Cohen said.

Avishai Cohen was born in Jerusalem in 1970. At home, music was already in the air, with his mother listening to classical and traditional music. He began to play the piano at an early age. 1992 was crucial for him when he moved to New York with his family. The young man had a tough beginning, performing in the streets working in construction to get by. He gained recognition gradually. Avishai Cohen has cooperated with Danilo Prez, a Grammy-winning pianist from Panama, and Chick Corea, a legendary pianist, composer, arranger and jazz music legend.
