"Tomer Cohen, a Young Exciting Israeli Jazz Guitarist" - Jazz Guitar Today (USA)
"A mature record with no ego. It is striking that the American Israeli does not opt for muscle language. He enriches his pastoral melodies with quicksilver notes, scents and colors." - Jazzism (Nederland)
"The creative mix of his Israeli and American musical roots produces refreshingly different grooves and a particularly effortless style of playing, even at faster tempos." - Jazz Journal (UK)
“Very mature record that doesn’t sound like a performance for guitar fans but a collective effort that focuses on musicality rather than virtuosity.” - Couleurs Jazz (France)
“Cohen writes melodies that flow, sometimes in directions you might not expect, and in such a way they require his exceptional technique to perform them, minus showing off any of his years of music lessons.” - The Big Takeover Magazine (USA)
"It’s a music of the mind that never sacrifices the passion and soulfulness." - NYS Music (USA)
"He has built his "own vocabulary" from his influences not only from jazz, such as Wes Montgomery, Pat Metheny and Kurt Rosenwinkel, but also from rock bands: Led Zeppelin, AC/DC and Megadeth." - Reforma Newspaper (Mexico)
"A quiet and reflective never dull album" - Marlbank (UK)

The last few days were very special for me. I got to record my first album at Bunker Studio with Obed Calvaire & Matt Penman.
So grateful we could do it during these strange times, I can't wait for all of you to hear it.
