The clarinet is Anat Cohen’s traveling companion. With it, Cohen has visited many worlds, both geographic and musical.
Cohen is a native of Israel. The country has a great jazz scene, she says. But one particular scene is evidently not enough for her. In 1999 Cohen moved to New York, where she leads bands and operates her Anzic Records label.
