The revered Israeli bassist, vocalist and composer Avishai Cohen is gearing up for a gargantuan year of globetrotting to celebrate his 50th birthday as he performs 50 gigs in 50 countries throughout 2020 - named '50:50:50'.

Cohen’s has played with many household names over the years including Bobby McFerrin, Panamanian pianist Danilo Pérez, trumpeter Roy Hagrove, Herbie Hancock as well as Chick Corea, with whom he became a founding member of the pianist’s Origin band.

Chick Corea - who has recently been awarded his 25th GRAMMY - was given a demo tape by one of his friends, and he was reportedly blown away by Cohen's originality and freshness after listening to it in his car. 

The world tour will showcase a variety of line-ups including Cohen's Trio, the Gently Disturbed band with Shai Maestro and Mark Guiliana, special orchestral concerts and a run of UK shows in the autumn in partnership with Jazzwise Magazine.
