– All About Jazz

Multifaceted American jazz pianist and composer Emmet Cohen has emerged as one of his generation’s pivotal figures. A child prodigy, he began Suzuki method piano instruction at age three. Now 30 years old, his playing is a mature melding of musicality, technique, and concept. Cohen’s signature professional undertaking is the “Masters Legacy Series,” a celebratory set of recordings and interviews honoring legendary jazz musicians. Volume one of the “Masters Legacy Series” features drummer Jimmy Cobb, and volume two spotlights Ron Carter, the most-recorded bassist working today.
