Lorin Cohen’s work as a bassist and composer has resonated with audiences throughout North and South America, Europe, Asia, Africa, the Middle East and the Caribbean.
Currently based in NYC, the Chicago-bred bassist has shared his talents with numerous jazz luminaries, including Monty Alexander, Joe Locke, Steve Wilson, Geoffrey Keezer, and Victor Lewis, to name a few.
Cohen’s 2015 release, HOME, received wide critical acclaim, including a four-star review in Downbeat magazine.
Cohen’s musical experiences are not limited to the world of Jazz. Equally adept on the bass guitar as well as the upright bass, he played in the Broadway production of “Motown: The Musical”, as well as the Chicago run of “Jersey Boys”. His original songs and talents as a producer can be heard in the work of the band Vertikal.
Cohen is the founder of the Bass Improv Mastery Program, which provides intermediate-pro bassists with the tools to achieve breakthrough improv fluency.
His instructional package "New Shapes for Bass" has been purchased by bassists around the world, and his "Touching Bass Bootcamps" broke new ground for online jazz bass programs from 2021-2022.
