World-renowned clarinet player leads troupe of jazz artists through multiple sounds as a part of the Charlie Parker Jazz Festival

Anat Cohen Tentet

There are very few connoisseurs of the clarinet in this world, and Anat Cohen surely reigns supreme amongst these select woodwindists. With a wonderful outpouring of vigorously harmonious tunes, the Tel-Aviv born Cohen leads her gifted team of ten on a jazzy voyage through multiple forms (with tinges of Brazilian, Eastern European, New York and New Orleans traditions). Her band’s blend of jazz and folk truly melds musical rituals from all over the world. Unanimously proclaimed as clarinet queen (the New York Times unequivocally states that she is a “Master”), top Jazz critics and publications rave about her sound. “With the clarinet she becomes a singer, a dancer, a poet, a mad scientist, laughing — musically — with the sheer delight of reaching that new place, that new feeling, with each chorus,” according to JazzTimes. Time and again, she is awarded the “Clarinetist of the Year” distinction from DownBeat, JazzTimes and the Jazz Journalists Association. With six solo albums so far, and eight collaborative records, Cohen simply loves to create and play. And one more thing, she’s also an expert saxophonist.
