Cohen-Rutkowski
Music

Co-lead by saxophonist Rich Cohen and pianist/composer Chris Rutkowski, Cohen-Rutkowski Music has several manifestations. The Cohen-Rutkowski Project focuses on sophisticated but high-energy acoustic jazz with a strong component of originals. The Cohen-Rutkowski Mix is a hard-grooving R&B based ensemble and The Mix is an events band that can equally satisfy the cultured listener and rock the dance floor! The Cohen-Rutkowski Duo (sax/piano) covers all these bases in a more intimate manner.

NUVO Review, Cohen-Rutkowski Project + Sandy Lomax at the Jazz Kitchen (1/29/23) by Rita Kohn: "the newly formed Cohen-Rutkowski Project introduced us to solo licks from a center flow and extended it through to its exit as a continuum out of our earshot; gracefully balletic is the best way I can describe what was happening as pianist Chris Rutkowski and saxophonist Rich Cohen took us into their private conversation"

Rich and Chris return to the very fine WICR radio program in May, 2023, "Have You Heard" for an hour-long interview and lots of music from the Project featuring Sandy Lomax. Listen

In his review of our Indy Jazz Kitchen Halloween 2021 performance, Jay Harvey notes "Rutkowski's tendency to find fresh ways of being funky at the piano...and ...Cohen's searching yet emotionally settled improvisation...sent a large, appreciative crowd happy out into the chilly night air."

Listen to a wide ranging interview with Chris Rutkowski on the WICR radio program, "Have You Heard"
