Editorial Reviews

Avishai Cohen's Triveni is an ensemble tailor made for its leader, running freely in the realms of hard-bop, straight-up funk, and avant-garde. Triveni, Sanskrit for "meeting point of three sacred rivers" is a true musical collaboration with ideas flowing fluently between Nasheet Waits (Drums), Omer Avital (Bass) and Cohen as they effortlessly move from the American songbook to standards and Cohen's original compositions. Cohen's playing has never sound so assured as he continues to establish himself as one of his generation's leading voices on the trumpet.

Like the previous reviewer, I too thought this album was by the bassist of the same name :).
No matter, this album is good - really tight, really good interplay of ideas & featuring some of the best finger-tapping, head-nodding jazz I've heard in a while, especially on the 12min+ "Ferrara Napoly" which never either loses its way or becomes tediously repetitive (even the two minute bass solo towards the end maintains interest). However, there is a tendency, which begins towards the end of the second track "Art Deco" & continues through to the beginning & middle of the lenghty third track "Wise One" to overdo skittering, semi-directionless drum/bass meandering (occasionally with trumpet overlay) which is often great to experience in the context of a live performance but can be the scourge of a lot of recorded jazz.
Thankfully "Amenu" & the closer "October 25th" revert to better type, with the latter featuring some bold, bright & highly rhythmic trumpet & ensemble work.
Final point - personally I question the need for re-interpretation of jazz standards on such a highly original album; however this is just a personal view & does not affect my rating.

I buy this CD after hear Triveni II. Both records are part of the same sessions, 17 , 18 dic 2010. The secssion are the same, and also the musician. Is a wonderful trio with Avishai Cohen on trumpet, Omer Avital on bass and Nasheet Waits on drums. Perfect combination between classic themes, Don Cherry, Coltrane...and his own material A good introduction to this super trumpet. If you like Triveni II please buy also this one.

A very nice album. Music and playing are very much influenced by Ornette Coleman, whom, incidentally, the artist doesn't mention at all in the liner notes, even though he thanks 30 other people. Anyway, a neat little record for the people who enjoy actual melodies mixed into their avantgarde.

Bought this cd under the opinion that it was a cd from Avishai Cohen the bass player. Nevertheless it's a beautiful cd. Fluid trumpet music with a minor Jewish influence.
Loved it.

Avishai Cohen is a multi-instrumentalist. Here, he plays trumpet. Some reviewers here are only familiar with him as a bassist. It's the same Avishai Cohen.
