Anat Cohen Celebrando Brasil

Anat Cohen Celebrando Brasil

“… soulful, ebullient…” – Seattle Times Anat Cohen’s enthusiastic performances bring new energy to the often neglected clarinet. Once the preferred instrument of swing era legends Benny Goodman, Artie Shaw and Woody Herman, the clarinet was superseded by the brassier saxophone as the reed instrument of choice once the bebop era took hold. In recent years, the influences of Brazilian choros and traditional klezmer music have re-introduced the clarinet to the jazz world with Anat leading the charge. A regular jazz poll-winner, Cohen’s onstage exuberance is as contagious as her new CD, Luminosa. $25/Adv $30/Door  (admission tax and service charge additional) No Comp Tix Sponsored by The Wedeen Hammer Group at Morgan Stanley Doors and dinner beginning at 6:00 PM...

SOLD OUT! Monday, April 22, 7:00 PM Anat Cohen Quartet $22/Adv $25/Door Doors and dinner at 6:00 PM Sponsored by Jazzabelles “… delicious lyricism… a dynamic leader.” – DownBeat Anat Cohen is a fresh shot of energy for the often neglected clarinet. Popular during the swing era, the clarinet was the preferred instrument of jazz legends Benny Goodman, Artie Shaw, and Woody Herman. During the bebop era, the ‘licorice stick’ was superseded by the brassy saxophone as the reed instrument of choice. Yet, more recently, the influences of Brazilian choros and Old World klezmer have re-introduced the clarinet to the jazz world, and Anat is leading the charge. She has won the clarinet category in both the Jazz Journalists and DownBeat jazz polls, and her onstage exuberance is absolutely contagious. If you haven’t heard Anat Cohen in concert – you should. Claroscuro is her latest CD. Jason Lindner – piano Joe Martin – bass Daniel Freedman  – drums...
