Jazz Jams with Tal Cohen (USA) - Perth International Jazz Festival

Friday 26 May 11.55pm

Join Tal Cohen, 2015 winner of the Freedman Fellowship, as he leads the first night of PIJF Jazz Jams. His unique piano style owes its roots to the Jewish folk songs and classical music. “Tal Cohen is among the best of a very few young inspired pianists I’ve encountered in my travels. Tal’s playing is full of passion, focus and creativity. He was a joy to share the stage with.” – Joe Lovano


Indulge in some late night mingling with fellow jazz aficionados and the PIJF artists as they come together on Friday, Saturday and Sunday evenings to meet, share a drink and jam until the early hours of the morning. This is your opportunity to witness the very essence of jazz improvisation as the musicians put their ears and imaginations to the test.


Now based in the US, Tal Cohen’s unique piano style owes its roots to the Jewish folk songs and classical music he played in his formative years growing up in Gedera, Israel. He graduated from WAAPA in 2008 and immediately began accumulating awards and prestigious performance opportunities. He was the 2015 winner of the Freedman Fellowship Award and in 2014 won the Barry Harris Piano Competition in the US. He has become a regular performer with iconic jazz figures such as Terence Blanchard and Robert Hurst and continues to tour the world performing his unique brand of improvised music.
