Joe Cohn



Joe is an unbelievable improviser. He has always been great and seems to be kicking everything to even higher levels recently. After seeing him this summer I walked away from his performance with such a strong sense of who he has become as a person through his music. He was able to keep ideas going and flowing and turned sentences into paragraphs and paragraphs into stories. For me, that quality is the most rare thing to find and almost appears to be a dying art sometimes.  His quartet with Harry Allen is one of the best bands out there right now (with Harry himself being another of the keepers of the narrative flame) and is well worth checking out – but the record listed here is one of Joe’s most recent solo records.  “Restless” by Joe Cohn
