our favorite bass player

damian has been really into avishai cohen for a few years now. the latter being a jazz bassist-composer from israel. i’m not usually a fan of jazz, but the most recent album, aurora, is so beautiful i’m considering abandoning my long standing contempt for the jazz genre. unfortunately the album was not released in the US or canada so is not available for less than $30 here. phoey. i figure they have to release it eventually. in the mean time, there’s youtube to serenade me while i make my last push of this long school term.[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dFt1J4pXR54]
