CD 1 • collection of my best-known songs when with “Kol Simcha” – a band-driven 12-voice choral ensemble. I wrote all music & lyrics to my own tunes, co-produced with Gold-Record™ winner Rick Coghill – played piano, co-produced, did vocal and instrumental arrangements, etc.
CD2 • Re-issue of Cohen & Rose duo’s world-beat light rock album. I co-produced with Coghill and multiple Grammy™ winner, Larry Gold. Whitney Houston’s sax player Jay Davidson sat in, as did Gold on cello, and Coghill with Ray Legnini for lead guitar duet. I wrote music and lyrics for all tunes, performed all piano and foundational instrumental tracks on MOTU™ Digital Performer™ & Synclavier™.
“Cohen’s songs have been an essential part of the make-up of the entire genre we now term, ‘Messianic.’ If you have been in (this arena of music) for any length of time, you know these songs. These are some of the ‘standards’ that come to mind whenever you think of ‘Messianic praise and worship.'” – MTimes Music Review Fall 2007
