ANAT COHEN QUARTET
Thursday, May 16, 2019 · 7:00 PM
The JAI @ The Conrad Prebys Performing Arts Center
Clarinetist and saxophonist Anat Cohen has taken the jazz world by storm, winning hearts and minds the world over with her expressive virtuosity and delightful stage presence. As JazzTimes says, “With the clarinet she becomes a singer, a dancer, a poet, a mad scientist, laughing — musically — with the sheer delight of reaching that new place, that new feeling, with each chorus.” An established bandleader and prolific composer, the Anat Cohen Quartet program is a unique blend of modern and traditional jazz, classical music, Brazilian choro, Argentine tango, and an expansive timeline of Afro-Cuban styles. The perennial winner of “Clarinetist of the Year” titles from DownBeat, JazzTimes, and the Jazz Journalists Association, Fresh Air‘s Terry Gross credits Cohen with “bringing the clarinet to the world” and The New York Times hails her a “Master.”Seating will be available on a first come, first served basis at your assigned table. Small bites and beverages will be available from Snake Oil Cocktail Company. Please note, La Jolla Music Society will present the Anat Cohen Quartet at 7:00 PM and 9:00 PM.
