Step into a rich and compelling musical world with "Arvoles," an album where the gifted jazz bassist Avishai Cohen unfolds an intricate panorama of aural landscapes. With a reputation for blending a variety of musical traditions into his work, Cohen masterfully integrates elements from Eastern European folklore, Western classical themes, and Middle Eastern musical influences to create a cohesive jazz narrative that is both layered and mesmerizing.
