Celebrated clarinetist, Anat Cohen, just won her fourth consecutive ‘Clarinetist of the Year’ award from the Jazz Journalists Association. and top Clarinetist in the 59th ANNUAL (2011) DOWNBEAT CRITICS POLL WINNERS. When Cohen and her brothers were growing up in Tel Aviv, Israel, jazz was not plentiful. She learned clarinet, and she played in a Dixieland group and big band at the Jaffa Conservatory as a teen. Her brothers, Yuval on saxophone and Avishai on trumpet have followed a similar musical path. The family bond the siblings share obviously contributes to their unique telepathy and symbiosis on the bandstand and in the studio, but the level of interplay and musical cooperation that exists between the Cohens can only be described as astounding.
Anat’s charm and talent make her a standout crowd pleaser. Get your tickets early as she was featured in a sold-out concert at the Shalin Liu with George Wein’s ensemble just last July. If you have not experienced the Shalin Liu, 11.11.11 is the perfect date to discover this spectacular oceanfront venue.
