Anat Cohen

At the leading edge of a wave of brilliant Israeli improvisers who have energized the New York jazz scene over the past two decades, Anat Cohen is the most acclaimed clarinetist of her generation and a commanding tenor saxophonist. This performance, filmed on December 3, 2017, features Cohen’s superb Tentet in their West Coast debut, and includes music from the ensemble’s 2017 Anzic album Happy Song


Soaring melodic lines and seemingly effortless virtuosity Chicago Tribune

Raised in Israel, GRAMMY-nominated multi-instrumentalist Anat Cohen has been a force on the New York jazz scene for over two decades. Her talents keep growing, as she absorbs swing, samba, Middle Eastern and classical influences into her organic and inviting concept. Her clarinet evokes “infectious joy,” says the New York Times, calling her “an improviser with gusto.”

Cohen’s talent-laden group is stocked with some of the most exciting young players in New York and is another synergistic collaboration between Cohen and co-producer/co-arranger Oded Lev-Ari, who is her partner in Anzic Records and a protégé of the legendary arranger and multi-instrumentalist Bob Brookmeyer.

The Tentet’s book is infused with her love of Brazilian music, but with an expansive palette of orchestral colors and high-spirited rhythms that inspired DownBeat to say, “the sense of fun is contagious, and swing is seriously the thing.”
