Anat Cohen Quartet To Make Miller Theatre Jazz Series Debut 2/11
From Miller Theatre Director Melissa Smey:
“I am so thrilled to present the Anat Cohen Quartet as part of our Jazz series this season. Anat Cohen has been on my wish list for a while now, and I cannot wait to share her incredible gifts as a musician, bandleader, and improviser with our audience at Miller. The sheer range of her influences and interpretations makes her one of the most exciting jazz musicians today.”
Jazz at Miller Theatre
New York’s jazz heart wasn’t always located downtown. Once it was found on 52nd Street and before that on 125th, and for many decades its most powerful radio voice has been WKCR-FM on the campus of Columbia University. Just a few yards away, jazz finds an uptown home at Columbia’s Miller Theatre. This season’s Jazz series began in November with the astounding, inventive Lionel Loueke Trio and the bold and energetic Renee Rosnes Quartet. This spring the Anat Cohen Quartet, led by the Israeli woodwind virtuoso, makes its Miller debut and the amazing Don Byron brings his new project, the Don Byron New Gospel Quintet, to the stage.
