Anat Cohen Tentet – Musical Director: Oded Lev-Ari – 9:00 PM

May 20 @ 9:00 pm

With the Anat Cohen Tentet, woodwind virtuoso Anat Cohen brings audiences an evocative and exciting experience centered around the clarinet. Both on stage and on Cohen’s latest release, Happy Song, the Tentet weaves a tapestry of sounds, freeing Cohen to explore the full range of the clarinet’s dynamics and demonstrate its vastly expressive character. As JazzTimes says, “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.” The Tentet’s repertoire draws on Anat’s diverse musical loves, from Brazilian music to African grooves, and from vintage swing to touching ballads. Above all, Happy Song is another synergistic collaboration between Anat and co-producer/co-arranger Oded Lev-Ari, who is her partner in Anzic Records and who has been a kindred spirit since their high school days in Israel. The Tentet looks forward to the release of a new album in 2019. The Tentet on this concert date features Owen Broder on reeds, Nadje Noordhuis on brass, Nick Finzer on trombone, Christopher Hoffman on cello, Sheryl Bailey on guitar, Vitor Gonçalves on keyboards, Tal Mashiach on bass, Anthony Pinciotti on drums, James Shipp on vibraphone and percussion.
