Fourteen years ago, after completing her service in the Israeli military, saxophonist Anat Cohen left her native Tel Aviv to study at the Berklee College of Music. After finishing her degree and picking up the clarinet along the way she turned to the sounds of the Latin diaspora; Brazilian choro, Argentine tango and a journey through the timeline of Afro-Cuban styles to create her own distinctive international sound. She has released four acclaimed albums to date which have launched her as a bright new star of the jazz world.
Her quartet is comprised of creative arranger Jason Lindner, sideman Joe Martin, and frequent collaborator/producer Daniel Freedman. Their set includes Brazilian choros, an Israeli ballad, a cool take on the classic “After You’re Gone,” and Cohen’s own warm and lively compositions which they will be performing in a new installment of the Brooklyn Jazz Wide Open Series along with special guests trumpeter Ralph Alessi and bassist Chris Lightcap at Littlefield Performance and Art Space in Boerum Hill.
