Joe Cohn

Joe Cohn was destined to a career in music because of his musical antecedents. Joe, the son of Al Cohn, a legendary saxophonist, and Marylin Moore, a vocalist and singer, has steadily rose to the top and established himself as one of jazz’s most creative and catalytic guitarists. Joe emerged from his years at the Berklee School of Music in the late 70s as a multi-instrumentalist, and is no less impressive on trumpet. His guitar work is always praised and highly regarded. His professional experience as guitarist is first-rate. His father Al Cohn led him on tours and he played with Freddy Cole (1979-87), Nick Brignola (touring Brazil), Bob Mover and Nick Brignola. He also played with Freddy Cole, Artie Shaw and Zoot Sims. He has performed at the New York City jazz club and concert circuit with Al Cohn, Artie and Al Grey, Fat Tuesday’s, Sweet Basil, Al Grey and Warren Chiasson, and the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion with Artieshaw. He also played at Lincoln Center with Hank Jones, Wynton Marsalis, and the Lincoln Center with Hank Jones. He has also played at the Oslo Jazz Festival together with Frank Wess and the annual jazz cruise aboard the SS Norway. He has also performed with Al Grey at the Lionel Hampton Club, Paris, with Duffy Jackson. Although his credits are endless, the best proof of his playing is in hearing it.
