YUVAL COHEN CHAMBER JAZZ SEXTET
THE KADISHZUGER SUITE
"He displays a gift for writing memorable themes"
- Andrew Gilbert, The Boston Globe
The perennial search for new horizons and untapped prespectives are the motivating forces behind the music of saxophonist and composer Yuval Cohen. A Leading figure of Israeli Jazz, he probes and dissects a multitude of worlds, the links and bounderies between them.
The 10 part KadishZuger Suite, his lastest work of chamber jazz sextet, synthesizes western Romantic music, traditional Jazz and the Israeli music that Cohen grew up with. With its strong melodies, varied layers and textures, the piece culminates in a rich and complex musical experience with a uniquely contemporary feel.
