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.

Led by Myron Cohen, the band features local great improvisers such as pianists Bliss Rodriguez, Lee Bloom, Grant Levin, David Udolf—and on occasion Eddie Mendenhall. These great musicians create on-the-spot jazz explorations that are always fresh and entertaining. Renowned touring jazz performers including, Craig Handy, Azar Lawrence, Mike Clark and Diane Witherspoon drop by now and again and raise the roof.
