“Lots of young pianists have chops and energy, but Cohen also has an instinct for meaningful aesthetic form. His spilling runs and chiming resolutions are necessary to an overall design.”
— Thomas Conrad, Jazz Times
“Cohen is a young piano virtuoso with a delicate touch, assured, swaggering swing feel, and debonair flow.”
— Giovanni Russonello, NYTimes
Internationally-acclaimed and multi-faceted American jazz pianist and composer Emmet Cohen makes his debut in Singapore with the Emmet Cohen Trio, bringing us on an unforgettable and immersive experience of jazz standards and fresh compositions.
A leading figure of the jazz circuit today, Cohen is best known for developing Live From Emmet's Place, a weekly livestream which emulates the Harlem rent parties of the yesteryear, spearheading the sophistication and standards of live internet jazz performances whilst amassing millions of internet views from jazz lovers all across the world. Some notable artistes who have made guest appearances on his stream include Samara Joy, Lucy Yeghiazaryan, Cyrille Aimée, Pasquale Grosso and Nicholas Payton.
Cohen is committed to the intergeneration transfer of jazz traditions and knowledge, often sharing insight into the genre's rich history to foster deeper appreciation for the art form. A dynamic and charismatic performer, the close connection between Cohen and his audiences brings about intimacy and personability, invigorating the jazz world and enthusing jazz lovers both at home and abroad.
Cohen's accolades include winning the 2019 American Pianists Awards and being a finalist in the 2011 Thelonious Monk International Piano Competition. Cohen has headlined at renowned venues like Jazz at Lincoln Center, the Village Vanguard, and Birdland, and performed at major jazz festivals worldwide.
