NEW RELEASE August 2021
“What I love about Tom’s playing is his musicality, open mind and free spirit. All of these elements, to me, are what make a great musician.”
- Joey Defrancesco
“Tom is a part of the lineage of drummers with one foot in the past and one foot in the present. I always hear a conversation when Tom is a part of an ensemble, which speaks to his ability to transcend the instrument and effectively communicate his point of view in the sonic language.”
- Justin Faulkner (Drummer with Branford Marsalis)
MEDIA and REVIEWS
NPR/WBGO / Nate Chinon Review - "Drummer Tom Cohen has covered a broad expanse of musical terrain over the last 45 years."
Jazztimes / A.D. Amorosi Review - " The inventive Philadelphia-based drummer re-appropriates his hometown’s organ-jazz trio tradition and takes it to another level."
Making A Scene Review - "Highly energetic date in straight-ahead mode, not so much in the soul-jazz mode of most jazz organ trios but equally soulful, burning and uplifting just the same."
