Discover the Original Sounds of Israeli Composer/Bassist Haggai Milo Cohen & Friends: Jazz Fusion with Middle Eastern Flair … and More: November 26th, Friday (10:00 p.m. – 2:00 a.m.)
Listen to Haggai Milo Cohen.
World music composer Haggai Milo Cohen (also known as Jatu) firmly believes that in order for any music to have “real value” it must convey most effectively to its listeners an emotional or philosophical message which truly comes from the heart of its creator. He will liken his basic jazz sound to that of the standard Western genre heavily laced with additional traditional Israeli and Middle Eastern music elements. But wait … there’s more. Within in his original compositions, one can also hear influences of various Indian genres, trance, rock and roll, and hip-hop as well. Milo Cohen’s enthusiasm for experimentation with such an eclectic mix of genres should come as no surprise if you take a look at the long list of musicians of whom he considers to be his greatest mentors and/or sources of artistic inspiration throughout his career. Just take a look at his MySpace page and you’ll see what I mean! In addition, he has performed with a number of different ensembles over the years. Here is a partial listing of such musical collaborations, complete with sound links for you listening enjoyment, including: the Secret Music Project (SMP) (presenting, along with Milo Cohen, a new and original world music genre called “New Israeli Folk Improvisation”), Daniel Wright’s World Collective, Milo Cohen/Omer Klein duet, and the Ilan Bar-Lavi Quintet. Just recently, as he continues to expand his horizons, he has been contributing his talents in the area of mult-media works involving modern dancers, such as Boston’s Liz Roncka. He has even delved into the fashion photography industry.
It’s not certain just yet as to exactly who Haggai Milo Cohen will be appearing with at his upcoming concert at The Beehive in Boston’s South End, but you can be sure that you will be treated to a lot of his highly original jazz compositions, all of which he assures us are designed specifically leave his audiences in a state of peace and well-being. Undoubtedly, one of the very best things that music can do for us!
