The New Morning 2019
The New Morning venue in Paris is a legendary spot: over the years it has played host to Roy Hargrove’s last performance (as well as the inspiration behind his modern standard “Strasbourg St. Denis”), a mythical performance by Gil Scott-Heron when he was on the brink of prison and ruin as well as countless other moments that showcased the cutting edge of jazz, funk, soul and global music. It is a versatile history, one matched by the style that Avishai Cohen is known for. The Israeli trumpeter is a fusion master mixing rock, psychedelia, groove, jazz and electronic for a unique cocktail of modern music.
