Steve Cohn is a thoughtful composer and pianist who first surfaced in the early ’80s. His recordings never lack for well-formed ideas and vigorous exchanges between him and his collaborators. Yet his music has been documented far too infrequently in recent years. As a result, Cohn’s latter recordings have the feel of isolated snapshots instead of a chapter from an ongoing narrative. Given his assets, he deserves a label that will regularly release his work.
