O’s Notes: This is the third recording for trumpeter Avishai Cohen’s trio with Omar Avital (b) and Nasheet Waits (d). They sprinkle in guest artists Gerald Clayton (p) and Anat Cohen (cl) for a few tracks to add a new and appreciated dimension. The largest departure from the norm is on “I Fall In Love Too Easily” featuring Keren Ann’s gentle vocals. Dark Nights are indeed a melancholy set of songs, six originals by Cohen along with four well done classics. It is a studio set completed on one day with no more than two takes per song assuring spontaneity and attentiveness that comes through loud and clear.
