Renowned West Coast Jazz Drummer

Jazz Drummer Myron Cohen lives in the San Francisco Bay Area, Ca. where he's played with such luminaries as Michael Bloomfield, John Lee Hooker, B.B. King, Rahsaan Roland Kirk, Otis Spann, Ron Stallings, Azar Lawrence, Ravi Coltrane, Donald 'Rafael' Garrett, Woody Shaw, and Wayne Shorter - to name a few. Whether in sessions, live performances, recordings, or just informal jams, these musical experiences have given Cohen a huge vocabulary to share on the bandstand.

Private Lessons are available. Brushes for hire: myroncohen@sbcglobal.net
