3 Cohens Sextet

by

This trio of Israeli sibs have a nifty approach: Their new sounds old and their old sounds new. So as their brass and reed lines weave through each other, a gypsy take on N’awlins polyphony meets up with the art of the fugue and (in small doses) the squall of the loft. That makes for fireworks, which explains why audiences eat ’em up. Having the right rhythm section makes all this action even more jet propelled, and this week’s Goldman/Penman/Hutchinson triumvirate should do just fine.
