»›Iroko‹ has been a long-held dream of mine ever since I met Abraham Rodriguez Jr [...]. [He is] a master of Afro-Caribbean music in its entire spectrum,« says Avishai Cohen. The Israeli-born composer, bassist and singer has left his mark on the jazz scene like no other over the past 25 years. Now he is working with the Conguero singer Abraham Rodriguez Jr. The student of the legendary percussionist Orlando »Puntilla« Ríos has been a sought-after musician in the Latin jazz scene for decades. The title for the project was inspired by the tree of the same name: Iroko is feared in some West African cultures because a spirit living in it is said to drive people mad. Cohen, Rodriguez Jr. and other top-class musicians like Horacio »El Negro« Hernández play virtuosically against this madness and invoke the African deities by reinterpreting Afro-Cuban standards and popular songs. Of course, the typical clave rhythm is not to be missed.
