sponsored in part by:
“Cohen has emerged as one of the brightest, most original young instrumentalists in jazz. She has expanded the vocabulary of jazz with a distinctive accent of her own.”—Washington Post
“Cohen makes it seem easy, mixing a gift for melody and an improvisational fluidity that has few peers today.”—New York Times
Israeli-born Anat Cohen is a brilliant young clarinetist and sax player, bandleader, and prolific composer who, in just a few short years, has established herself as one of the brightest new talents in jazz. In 2011, she was the winner of both DownBeat Magazine’s Critic’s Poll and Reader’s Poll in the clarinet category. The Jazz Journalists Association named Cohen “Clarinetist of the Year” from 2007 through 2011, the first time in the history of the awards that an artist has earned top clarinet honors five years running.Back to Concerts
