What is it with trumpeter Avishai Cohen and triples lately? He recently recorded a pair of albums with his band Triveni, a free-swinging trio which showcases his fervent imagination. He’s also one of three Cohen siblings in jazz’s top echelon; Avishai invited his big sister Anat, the celebrated clarinet specialist, to join him here. Fresh off a European tour with Dave Douglas‘ Tea For Three project, Cohen performs with Triveni and special guests at Newport’s Harbor Stage.
