ABOUT THIS CONCERT
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. She returns with her superb Tentet, performing music from their 2017 debut Happy Song and their GRAMMY-nominated 2019 follow-up Triple Helix.
Cohen’s talent-laden group is stocked with some of the most exciting young players in New York and is another synergistic collaboration between Cohen and co-producer/co-arranger Oded Lev-Ari, who is her partner in Anzic Records and a protégé of the legendary arranger and multi-instrumentalist Bob Brookmeyer.
Cohen released two Brazilian jazz albums in the last few years, Outra Coisa with guitarist Marcello Gonçalves and Rosa Dos Ventos with the great Trio Brasileiro (both on Anzic). Not surprisingly, the Tentet’s book is infused with her love of Brazilian music, but with an expansive palette of orchestral colors and high-spirited rhythms that inspired DownBeat to say “the sense of fun is contagious and swing is seriously the thing.”
