We open with Anat Cohen's Anzic Orchestra, Avishai Cohen in the trumpet section, at the Mary Lou Williams Festival at the Kennedy Center in Washington, DC. Then Avishai's three-man group steps up at the 2011 Newport Jazz Festival and -- even though it's more spare -- the music just keeps coming. Avishai meets the challenge of a trumpet trio with no piano, guitar or vibes to fill the space. Besides his own Ornette-y pieces, they play Don Cherry's "Art Deco" and "Portrait" by Charles Mingus.
