Playing the Room bears testimony to the long musical friendship of Avishai Cohen and Yonathan Avishai who explored jazz as teenagers in Tel Aviv, and have continued to play together over many years. Their first duo album begins with music composed by the trumpeter and by the pianist and concludes with a touching interpretation of Israeli composer Alexander Argov's cradle song "Shir Eres". Along the way, Avishai and Yonathan improvise - freely, playfully, soulfully - on themes from jazz tradition.
