Avishai Cohen is currently my favorite living trumpeter, so I’ve posted about him often. In my research for The Practice of Practice, I spoke with Avishai about practice when he was in Chicago for a gig. Listen to that interview here. In addition to being a kick-ass jazz trumpeter, he’s got the best beard on a trumpeter I’ve ever seen. Correct me if I’m wrong.
The good folks at Jazz Standard did an interview with Avishai recently. Check it out below. A bunch of great music on it, from Avishai Cohen and others, too. Good stuff, but if you want to skip ahead to the interview, scrub forward to 19:16.
