Last year, we left Avishai Cohen with Aurora, his first record with Blue Note. On this opus brimming with heady charm, the double-bass player, composer, pianist and arranger added yet another string to his bow: vocals, a talent he had discreetly deployed on some previous recordings, now asserted loud and clear. Aurora showcased Avishai Cohen’s talent in a new light: the composer with wandering lyrics, the phenomenal musician, the astounding stage performer, the one Chick Corea called a genius, the musician that Down Beat defined as a jazz visionary, all stepped aside to reveal a vocalist with a gentle voice and cosmopolitan tone, with Hebrew and Arab-Andalusian overtones.
With Seven Seas, this native of Jerusalem now established in Tel Aviv, now one of the most popular jazz players of the past decade, takes his artistic approach to its zenith. Featuring nursery rhymes, lullabies and suites in which heroic inspiration and symphonics abound. Seven Seas plunges us into a fabulous sound voyage, in which understatement and magnitude play a never-ending game of ping-pong, a trip that easily transposes to the silver screen. Once you get past the opening credits dripping in joyful nostalgia, you steer past isles of rhythm and continents of sound, winding up with a traditional piano ladino with Cohen’s intense vocals.

Cohen has reached a new pinnacle as an artist. It’s more of a fusion album, perhaps bringing us closer to reality of an odyssey, with its title that transports us into nautical legend: seven seas’ many twists and turns make it the most exciting of albums in Cohen’s discography.

He performs this year with Shai Maestro on piano and keyboard, along with Itamar Doari’s creative percussion.
