Sorry, falks!

There's no confusion at all!

There are, in fact, two Avishai Cohen. One plays the bass and the other (no
relation) plays trumpet. He is from Israel (like the bassist) and I've heard
him personally several times, here in Lisbon, at the Hot Club of Portugal.
With american musicians and with local musicians.

I saw with my eyes and heard with my ears.

Hey Mike and all,

Actually, this isn't accurate. Avishai Cohen, whose recent release entitled
_At Home_ (RazDaz/Sunnyside) has never, at any time, played the trumpet. He
is though, an accomplished pianist and composer, as well as electric and
upright bassist. I double checked with management just to make sure my facts
were in order. I hope this clears up the confusion.

"To add to the confusion, the bass playing Avishai Cohen plays trumpet from
time to time, so to get back to square one, we may be talking about the same
person here.
