Anzic Records to Release “New Blues’ by Third World Love

Anzic Records has announced the March 4th release of New Blues, the second U.S. album (and fourth overall) by the quartet featuring Avishai Cohen (trumpet), Yonatan Avishai (piano), Omer Avital (bass) and Daniel Freedman (drums).

Three of the group’s members originate from Israel and one (Daniel Freedman) is from New York, where they have become mainstays on the city’s jazz scene (pianist Yonatan Avishai, however, resides in the south of France). They met four years ago in Barcelona, and have enjoyed success with their three previous recordings, Third World Love Songs, Avanim and Sketch of Tel Aviv.

The group is planning several tour dates in support of this recording: March 9 @ SF Jazz, March 10 @ Kuumbwa Jazz Center (Santa Cruz, CA), March 12 @ The Regatta Bar (Cambridge, MA) and March 14 @ Drom in NYC.
