FREE for SFJAZZ Members*
Step into the SFJAZZ “living room” and hear artists and tastemakers spinning their favorite recordings while in conversation with SFJAZZ Founder and Executive Artistic Director Randall Kline. Listening Parties offer listeners the chance to get behind-the- scenes and hear about music from the artist’s perspective. The format is an on-stage conversation in the Robert N. Miner Auditorium, accompanied by the artist’s pick of recorded, and sometimes live, excerpts. The conversation closes with questions from the audience followed by a reception with complimentary drinks and bites.
This Listening Party features 2021-22 Resident Artistic Director Anat Cohen, taking a deep dive into her week of residency that includes a duo show with Brazilian guitarist Marcello Gonçalves, two nights with her celebrated Tentet, and the Bay Area premiere of her latest project, Quartetinho. Cohen’s performances run March 24–27, 2022.
Wine will be provided courtesy of Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant.

ABOUT 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. Winner of top clarinetist honors from the Jazz Journalists Association for fourteen consecutive years and DownBeat Critics Poll Clarinetist of the Year for eleven straight years, the GRAMMY-nominated multi-reedist has created a singular aesthetic, blending 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.”
