By Nicholas Cho

“Few musicians capture the global essence of jazz like Anat Cohen.

After moving from Tel Aviv, Israel to Boston, Mass. to study at Berklee College of Music, clarinetist Anat Cohen developed an ear and a fluency in Afro-Latin music, which she will showcase this Saturday, Nov. 7 at Miller Theatre in a concert titled ‘Celebrando Brasil.’ Cohen will be performing with her quartet, which features pianist Jason Lindner, bassist Tal Mashiach, and drummer Daniel Freedman, and she will also be joined onstage by various special guests.

Spectator had a chance to speak with Cohen ahead of ‘Celebrando Brasil’ on topics ranging from her recent album ‘Luminosa,’ which features Brazilian jazz guitarist Romero Lubambo and a Flying Lotus cover, to her transition into becoming a musician in the U.S.”
