“A young piano virtuoso with a delicate touch, assured, swaggering swing feel, and debonair flow.” –The New York Times

Emmet Cohen, a jazz sensation, leads his acclaimed trio with bassist Joe Ranieri and drummer Joe Farnsworth. Called “one of the finest piano players to emerge in decades” by All About Jazz, Cohen has earned a dedicated and passionate following and has attracted new audiences to jazz. He has accompanied numerous jazz luminaries and plays with the command of a seasoned veteran. Downbeat observed that his “nimble touch, measured stride, and warm harmonic vocabulary indicate he’s above any convoluted technical showmanship.” His trio is one of the hottest young quartets in jazz today and melds all styles of jazz: stride, swing, bebop, free, and contemporary, with an emphasis on the Great American Songbook.

Emmet Cohen is the winner of the 2019 American Pianists Awards.
