Al Cohn

Biography

Al Cohn was a tenor saxophonist who came about in the early ‘50s heavily influenced by the swinging sound of Lester Young. Also recognized as a fine composer, Cohn played straight jazz with a cool sound not too different from Zoot Sims (with whom he shared a band). His sound grew more somber as he continued recording until the ‘80s, but it never lost its' relaxed, warm intensity.
