WBGO, October 22, 2008 – It’s not quite enough to say that Anat Cohen has many interests in jazz. To start, she plays three instruments: clarinet and both soprano and tenor saxes. Then she plays them in various and sundry settings, including modern jazz, traditional ensembles, classical music and every type of Afro-Latin hybrid imaginable: Argentinian, Brazilian, pan-Caribbean and so on. And when Anat Cohen plays with her quartet, she funnels all of her interests into spirited original compositions. That group visited New York’s Village Vanguard for a live performance, broadcast on air by WBGO and online at NPR Music. Click here to listen.
