“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.”
– Jazz Times


“Cohen is a young piano virtuoso with a delicate touch, assured, swaggering swing feel, and debonair flow.”
– NYTimes
