Anat Cohen

The clarinet may never reassume its place in the forefront of jazz, but it won’t be for any lack of trying on Cohen’s part. This Israeli-born stylist is also a fine saxophonist, but her skillful clarinet excursions run through a wide variety of styles, including post-bop, New Orleans jazz, Brazilian music, klezmer, and Middle Eastern idioms. She first surfaced on the New York scene nearly two decades ago, and this engagement, in celebration of her new album, ‘Luminosa,’ finds her fleshing out her quartet with special guests during part of the run. (Jazz Standard, 116 E. 27th St. 212-576-2232. March 4-8.)
