Emmet Cohen Trio

Emmet Cohen - piano, Joey Ranieri - double bass, Joe Farnsworth - drums

Emmet Cohen is one of his generation's pivotal artistic figures. Downbeat praised the "nimble touch, measured stride and warm harmonic vocabulary" he employs to communicate with other musicians and audiences at what he terms "the deepest level of humanity and individuality."

“Among a small avalanche of new piano albums, all of them brilliant, this one from the New York-based Emmet Cohen stands out because it has the rare and elusive quality of charm. All pieces are perfectly serious, but not solemn; there are little eccentricities and the occasional wink.” THE GUARDIAN
