Three Cohens

I’m not sure what concert this video is from, but it has Anat Cohen and her two brothers Avishai and Yuval playing horns.  I liked the organic nature of the piece, how it evolved from a simple piano solo to a small piano, bass, and drums trio, to finally the whole ensemble.  I also noticed, especially during the trumpet solo, how the rhythm section was paying attention and very much a part of his solo. There was a section when he held out a note several times, and the rhythm section picked up on that and filled in the ‘gaps’ with more active, accented comping. After he went back to a more active line, the rhythm section dropped back to a more supportive role.  I also liked how during the tenor solo, she anticipated the other horns’ descending backup line, and instead of playing over it, she played through it so that their line complemented her solo and vice versa.
