Joined by a quartet of downtown Manhattan jazz luminaries (pianist Jason Lindner, bassist Omer Avital, drummer Daniel Freedman) and a string quartet, Cohen plays clarinet with a total command of the instrument. She sensitively renders, Coltrane’s "Lonnie's Lament", a biting Brel chanson, a ballad by Brazilian songwriter, Cavaquinho, four Israeli songs, two of her own originals and one by Avital.
I started to play the clarinet when I was 12. I received my early formal music education in a conservatory and in junior high school in my hometown of Tel-Aviv. At about age 16, when I decided to pursue a major in Jazz at the "Thelma Yelin" High School For The Arts, I was instructed to "bring your brother's saxophone or" any horn... but NOT the clarinet". For the next 15 years I played mainly tenor saxophone and only brought out my clarinet occasionally.
While attending Berklee College of Music in 1996, I met Phil Wilson, a great musician and educator. He encouraged me to play the clarinet because he felt I had my own "voice" on the instrument. After moving to NYC in 1999, I started to play different styles of music in which the clarinet is part of their tradition: Brazilian Choro, Dixieland, Colombian and Venezuelan folk music, among others. For the last seven years, I have played saxophones less and the clarinet more. I am feeling the connection with the instrument I established as a child and enjoying it more than ever.
I decided to make an album to share some of what I have learned about playing the clarinet in various musical contexts. The songs I have chosen are songs I have loved for years. There are some old Israeli songs like "Hofim" (Beaches), "Nigunim" (Melodies) and "Ein Gedi" (a beautiful oasis in Israel), a great song by Israeli singer/songwriter Ariel Zilber called "Japanese Tale" (which has stunning lyrics by Ehud Manor), a beautiful ballad called "Quando Eu Me Chamar Saudade" by the extraordinary Brazilian songwriter Nelson Cavaquinho, a French song by Jacques Brel "La Chanson des Vieux Amants" (Song for Old Lovers - which I would like to dedicate to Yossi Banai, whose version of the song in Hebrew I can only describe as truthful) and song by the great John Coltrane, "Lonnie's Lament". There are and two original compositions of mine - "The Purple Piece" and "La Casa del Llano" (a place I ate arepas several times during a visit to Caracas, Venezuela) and Omer Avital's impressionistic song "Cypresses".
I have always associated the clarinet with sounds that are flowing, expressive and intimate".i.e"poetic. I made this album, and named it Poetica, to inspire others to share this association with me.
Idiomatically conversant with modern and traditional jazz, classical music, Brazilian choro, Argentine tango, and an expansive timeline of Afro-Cuban styles, Anat Cohen has established herself as one of the primary voices of her generation on both the tenor saxophone and clarinet since arriving in New York in 1999.
Born in Tel Aviv, Israel, Anat grew up with musical siblings; her older brother, Yuval, is himself a saxophonist of note, and her younger brother, Avishai, is one of New York's busiest trumpeters. She began clarinet studies at age 12 and played jazz on clarinet for the first time in her Jaffa conservatory's Dixieland band. At 16 she joined the school's big band and learned to play the tenor saxophone. The same year, Anat entered the prestigious "Thelma Yelin" High School for the Arts, where she majored in jazz. After graduation, she discharged her mandatory Israeli military service duty from 1993-95, playing tenor saxophone in the Israeli Air Force band.
