This morning, instead of me making my normal jazz declarations that New York gets all the luck, this time I'm saying that France is. As bite-sized chunk after bite-sized chunk of Avishai Cohen's (bassist) upcoming album, Duende, reveals themselves, the fact that it's releasing on Blue Note France become more and more apparent. With videos like this one for the Thelonious Monk song "Criss Cross" featuring Nitai Hershkovits on piano coming up, perhaps we should hope that this will get a wider release down the line.

Avishai Cohen put out a new album last March on Blue Note France entitled Seven Seas. I just received a copy, so we'll have more on that soon. In the mean time, here's an excerpt from the title track and a video from the recording session.

Last October, Nextbop's Avishai Cohen (see that way we know if it's the trumpet guy or the bass guy!!) performed for France's distinguished jazz radio station TSF Jazz. Here's a video of the 1 hour concert where Avishai showcases tracks off his new album Seven Seas (we still haven't gotten our hands on that one which is why it's not up) with his 5tet comprised of Shai Maestro on piano, Amos Hoffman on guitar and oud, Karen Malka on vocals and Itamar Doari on percussions. I'm checking it out right now. It's pretty sick. Will surely brighten up your day. So watch it. Just do it (reproduced without the permission of Nike).
