They discuss the range of influences in Avishai's work, from his birthplace in Israel to his formative musical years in the jazz scene of New York City, where he was discovered by Chick Corea.

The pair also talk about Avishai's new project for 2013, Avishai Cohen With Strings, which we hear for the very first time.
