Avishai Cohen + Nitai Hershkovitz

If jazz is an art form based on surprise and discovery, spontaneity and intuition, then there’s something remarkably un-jazz-like about Israeli bassist Avishai Cohen’s 13th album.

These nine duets, recorded with young fellow-countryman, pianist Nitai Hershkovitz, display a considered poise and calculated elegance more akin to classical piano music. In fact, in places, these originals – as well as the reinterpretations of standards by Thelonius Monk, John Coltrane and Cole Porter – sound more like one of French pianist Jacques Loussier’s jazz makeovers of the work of Bach or Debussy.
