From Berklee Today (by: Mark Small)

Berklee grad, Anat Cohen returned to her alma mater to perform on New Year’s Eve:

“Cohen played tenor saxophone for two years in the Israeli Air Force Band before entering Berklee in 1996. Berklee Professor Phil Wilson detected something distinctive in her clarinet playing and encouraged her to develop it. The instrument has since become Cohen’s calling card and gateway to a vast world of musical styles and possibilities. On any given night, she might easily be found in a New York club playing with a Dixieland band, Sherrie Maricle & the Diva Jazz Orchestra, a Brazilian choro ensemble, or with the Duduka Da Fonseca Jazz Quintet. Or she may be leading her own group in her original compositions at jazz clubs and festivals anywhere in America, Europe, South America, Israel, or Japan.”
