When clarinetist Anat Cohen performs with her brothers – trumpeter Avishai Cohen (a former member of the SFJAZZ Collective) and saxophonist Yuval Cohen – the connection between them is natural and complete. Their instrumental voices overlay and wrap around one another, like a braid: “There’s something really telepathic when we play together,” she explains. “Other musicians go through a life journey in order to find that telepathy. But we just have it; we’re stuck together, because we’re siblings.” They grew up together in Tel Aviv and – as the 3 Cohens – have recorded four albums, including one titled Braid. The siblings are a unit. They jog together. They talk all the time. When they perform at SFJAZZ, the audience will witness a heart-to-heart conversation in musical form, free-flowing and filled with discovery. “Jazz is really about the conversation, the exploration, the unknown, the surprise,” Anat Cohen notes. “And to play with my brothers – just to think about it makes me smile. I love them. And of course, they’re badass musicians.”

Raised in Israel, the GRAMMY-nominated multi-reedist has been a force on the New York jazz scene for nearly 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.”

ABOUT ANAT COHEN

"An improviser with gusto" (The New York Times), Anat Cohen joins her brothers Avishai and Yuval on the Miner stage for a heart-to-heart conversation in musical form.

Over the past few years, 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-limits trumpet sounds with tireless fluency; Yuval has a full and relaxed sound on the soprano.
