Family - 3 Cohens

20011 Anzic Records

Being able to create and share music together, as 3 siblings, is a unique situation. Or so people tell us. We know no other way – it is as natural to us as breathing. But with the years we have become more and more grateful, realizing the wonderful gift we have received. The idea of recording with the great Jon Hendricks came to us after we met him in Brazil in 2010, where Jon sat in with our band. The connection felt magical and we all agreed that we must record together. We didn’t know it would be so soon. Thank you, Jon, for your amazing spirit, joy, stories and swing!! We want to thank the hard swinging Aaron, Matt and Greg: it was a thrill to have you on board with us for this one!

This album is dedicated to our parents, Bilha & David Cohen – without their love and support none of this would have been possible. Thanks to you music is our passion and our life – the greatest gift one (or three) could ever ask for!  In loving memory of our friend Amit Golan.
