The Three Cohens — Anat (right), Avishai (trumpet, center) and Yuval (left) — perform at the 2012 Newport Jazz Festival.

Erik Jacobs for NPR

Yuval (saxophone), Anat (reeds) and Avishai (trumpet) Cohen are siblings from Israel. They're also among the growing number of terrific jazz musicians from that country; Anat and Avishai have both had bookings for their own bands at Newport in recent years. Naturally, the three Cohens occasionally record and perform together as a band, whose original pieces and arrangements are supported by a rhythm section. It's a family reunion you won't secretly dread.
