Acclaim for 3 Cohens Sextet was immediate. According to All About Jazz, "What gives 3 Cohens a certain edge is the simpatico they share, extending beyond merely being siblings; it involves all three sharing the common bond of music from an early age, and the kind of comfort level and intuition that can only come from playing together for many years. The result is a front line that finds pleasure in the subtlest nuances. While there are hints of their ethnic heritage, this music is clearly rooted in contemporary post-bop... Throughout, a joyfulness pervades these performances." The New York Times enthused over the group's "family sound" and "intuitive counterpoint" before pointing out the players' individual qualities: "Anat has emerged as one of the best clarinet players in jazz, with a warm and singing tone; Avishai can play bebop and ballad lines and outer-limit trumpet sounds with tireless fluency; and Yuval has a full and relaxed sound on soprano."
