An established bandleader and prolific composer, idiomatically conversant with modern and traditional jazz, classical music, Brazilian choro, Argentine tango, and an expansive timeline of Afro-Cuban styles, Grammy-nominated clarinet-saxophonist Anat Cohen has established herself as one of the primary voices of her generation on both the tenor saxophone and clarinet. Charismatic and inspired, Anat has possesses an expressive virtuosity and a delightful stage presence. She began clarinet studies at age 12. Ms. Cohen's accomplishments have been recognized in a flurry of awards and distinctions from critics and fans alike. Winner of five consecutive Jazz Journalists Association "Clarinetist of the Year" awards and winner of DownBeat critic's & Reader's polls in the clarinet category (2011), Anat continues to perform around the world in various musical settings. Since 2005, Anat's series of releases have seen the clarinetist-saxophonist range from infectious swingers to lilting balladry, from small groups to larger ensembles and back again, exploring a universe of music along the way. Anat's most recent release came in March 2018 as a debut duo recording with the acclaimed pianist Fred Hersch – "Live in Healdsburg". 23.04.-27.04.2019 Anat Cohen TentetThe new vehicle for Anat is the Anat Cohen Tentet, a large format ensemble of ace New York musicians that made its debut at the Jazz Standard in Manhattan and the famed Newport Jazz Festival. With this group, Anat released the CD "Happy Song" (2017). The Tentet of "Happy Song" boasts a different sort of richness, one that's full but also fleet and fizzing, with an open, jazzy energy. The beautiful arrangements are by both Anat and Lev-Ari, with the latter directing the band. This week Anat presents this group at the International Jazzfestival Bern – exclusive in Europe!
