The upcoming edition of the Jerusalem Jazz Festival, which will take place for the fourth year at the Israel Museum December 12 to 14, is a varied affair. Once again, internationally acclaimed trumpeter, artistic director Avishai Cohen has cooked up a slew of shows that traverse several styles of jazz, taking in straight-ahead fare, jazz heavily seasoned with Latin colors, and experimental projects, jazz tinged with classical flavors, pop-oriented efforts, world music and hip hop.

Anyone who has listened to jazz here at any stage in the past 20 or so years may not be entirely aware of the incontrovertible fact that, were it not for US-born Arnie Lawrence making aliyah in 1997, in all likelihood the music on offer would be of an inferior standard.
