Anat Cohen Quartet at the Green Mill May 16-17 PDF Print

Anat Cohen © Andrea Canter

"On recordings and in live performance, Cohen’s reverence for clarinet tradition is as evident as is her passion for communicating in her own voice, a voice that channels the great vocalists of the 30s and 40s, the great horns of bebop, and the swirling sounds and phrasing of  freer approaches to harmony and improvisation, splashed with bright tropical colors.  With the clarinet she becomes a singer, a dancer, a poet, a mad scientist, laughing—musically—with the sheer delight of reaching that new place, that new feeling, with each chorus. With the dizzying speed of a saxophone, the eloquent legato of a violin or the slippery slides of a trumpet, Anat takes the clarinet “beyond” Goodman, into the 21st century, and back to its rightful place as a lead instrument. And with Cohen in her rightful place as leader of the band." -Andera Canter, Jazz Police

Anat Cohen and her Quartet appear at the Green Mill in Chicago on Friday, May 16th and Saturday, May 17th as part of the Israeli Jazz & World Music Festival.
