Avishai Cohen’s latest trio album is full of bold upright tones and ambitious compositions, performed with effortless ease. Tracked beautifully, with a very bass-forward sound, From Darkness explores new dimensions of soloing and arpeggiation on an album that seldom settles for straightforward walking lines. Cohen’s odd-time grooves feel so natural within his arrangements that you’ll find yourself nodding in meters of five or seven without even realizing it.
