Jazz’s Anat Cohen Headlines Diabetes Fundraiser
By: Owen McNally

Along with her soulful mix of fire and finesse, Anat Cohen, the brilliant, Israeli-born clarinetist/saxophonist, is a jazz existentialist who plays completely in the moment with moving poetic expression, urgent directness, clarity and concision.

Besides her celebration of spontaneity, the acclaimed instrumentalist/composer’s stylistic hallmarks include a passion for collaborative, witty interaction crackling with contrapuntal conversations. Her musical empathy makes her not only an outstanding soloist but also a team player, a bold, genre-crossing virtuoso who values unity and an esprit de corps when leading her bands of simpatico swingers.

The globe-trotting native of Tel Aviv brings these special qualities — extemporaneous invention, vital interplay and cohesive unity — with her as she performs with her quartet Saturday, Jan. 21, at 7 p.m. at the 15th annual “Jazz for Juvenile Diabetes” dinner/concert benefit at West Hartford Town Hall.
