Jazz bassist Avishai Cohen heads for a San Diego performance

SAN DIEGO  (Press Release)– The San Diego Jewish Music Series kicks off it’s 2010-2011 season with a one-night only concert with jazz bassist Avishai Cohen and his band, Monday, October 25th at 7:00pm.  The Music Series is part of the San Diego Center for Jewish Culture at the Lawrence Family Jewish Community Center, Jacobs Family Campus. 

Israeli Bassist/Composer/Band Leader Avishai Cohen is a musician who has been called a jazz visionary of global proportions by Downbeat, and declared one of the 100 Most Influential Bass Players of the 20th Century by Bass Player magazine.  Cohen is not only renowned around the world as a genius double bassist and profound composer, but also as a visionary bandleader following in the footsteps of Mingus, Dave Holland, Jaco Pastorius, Ray Brown, Charlie Haden, Stanley Clarke, and even Sting. 

In fact, every move Avishai Cohen makes routinely causes waves of critical praise.  Finding inspiration in musicians ranging from Bach to Stevie Wonder, Avishai can transform a tired Israeli school tune back into poetic gold.  He sings in Hebrew, English, Spanish and Ladino.
