In a world where the deepest musical roots are often taken for granted, Jeremy Cohen carries on the legacy of jazz violin with a deep knowledge of, and respect for the past. His tribute to Joe Venuti, captured here on film, is neither sentimental nor contrived. Rather, he combines the past with the present in a way that draws the audience into the story.
Jeremy Cohen is currently Resident Artist and String Coordinator at the Henry Mancini Institute at UCLA and Guest Artist in Residence at Mills College. He is also on the faculty of the Jazz School in Berkeley, California, and is a former faculty member of the Stanford Jazz Workshop. His eclectic style reflects his training with Itzhak Perlman and his admiration for violinists ranging from Fritz Kreisler to Joe Venuti.
He performs as soloist with symphony orchestras around the country, and concertizes regularly with his ViolinJazz Quartet and the award-winning Quartet San Francisco. In addition to his own concerts and recordings, Cohen has worked extensively on motion picture and TV soundtracks, He has also performed, toured, and/or recorded with a wide variety of artists.
