Longwood Debut

Having earned legions of new fans during the pandemic lockdown with Live from Emmet’s Place, multifaceted American jazz pianist and composer Emmet Cohen is known for his fluid technique, innovative tonal palette, and extensive repertoire. Through his music, Cohen expresses his belief that performing jazz is “about communicating the deepest levels of humanity and individuality; it’s essentially about connections,” both among musicians and with audiences.

More about Emmet Cohen

Emmet Cohen is one of his generation's pivotal figures in music and the related arts. Downbeat praised the “nimble touch, measured stride and warm harmonic vocabulary” he employs to communicate with other musicians and audiences at what he terms “the deepest level of humanity and individuality.” Leader of the Emmet Cohen Trio and creator of the Masters Legacy Series, Cohen is an internationally acclaimed jazz artist and dedicated music educator.

Cohen is the winner of the 2019 American Pianists Awards and the Cole Porter Fellow of the American Pianists Association, and serves as the artist-in-residence at the University of Indianapolis. A finalist in the 2011 Thelonious Monk International Piano Competition, Cohen has appeared at major international jazz festivals and at the Lincoln Center’s Rose Hall and Washingtons Kennedy Center, in addition to headlining at the Village Vanguard and other major New York jazz clubs. For many years he was Hammond B-3 organist-in-residence at Harlems SMOKE jazz club. During the lockdown he created Live From Emmets Place, a weekly livestream that received millions of internet views worldwide.

A Mack Avenue artist, Cohen holds jazz piano degrees from the Manhattan School of Music (M.M.) and the University of Miami (B.M.). Cohen has performed, recorded, or collaborated with Ron Carter, Benny Golson, Jimmy Cobb, George Coleman, Jimmy Heath, Tootie Heath, Houston Person, Christian McBride, Kurt Elling, Billy Hart, Herlin Riley, Lea DeLaria, and Bill T. Jones.
