FY22 Folly Jazz Series: Anat Cohen Quartetinho

JazzTalk by Dr. Larkin Sanders at 7:00PM

Featuring Vitor Gonçalves, Tal Mashiach, and James Shipp

Ever charismatic, prolific and inspired, Grammy-nominated clarinetist-saxophonist Anat Cohen has won hearts and minds the world over with her expressive virtuosity and delightful stage presence. As The Wall Street Journal says, “What’s not to love about a young clarinetist and saxophonist who plays everything we love – modern jazz, world music, “hot” New Orleans style jazz – and does it all brilliantly?”

The perennial winner of “Clarinetist of the Year” titles from DownBeatJazzTimes, and the Jazz Journalists AssociationFresh Air’s Terry Gross credits Cohen with “bringing the clarinet to the world” and The New York Times hails her a “Master.”

A unique blend of modern and traditional jazz, classical music, Brazilian choro, Argentine tango, and an expansive timeline of Afro-Cuban styles, the Anat Cohen Quartet is a musical tour-de-force that propels the clarinet to its rightful place at the forefront of jazz. Performing repertoire spanning Anat’s career and deep catalog of recordings, the Quartet has been Anat’s core ensemble through the years.
