At the leading edge of a wave of brilliant Israeli improvisers who have energized the New York jazz scene over the past two decades, Anat Cohen is the most acclaimed clarinetist of her generation and a commanding tenor saxophonist. This concert, filmed in December 2017, marked the West Coast debut of her superb recent tentet project. The group is stocked with some of the most exciting young players in New York, including Maria Schneider Orchestra, trumpeter Nadje Noordhuis, Brazilian pianist/accordionist Vitor Gonçalves, vibraphonist James Shipp, and guitar star Sheryl Bailey. The essential 11th member is music director/arranger Oded Lev-Ari, a protégé of the legendary trombonist and arranger Bob Brookmeyer. The Tentet’s songbook is infused with Cohen’s love of Brazilian music, but with an expansive palette of orchestral colors and high-spirited rhythms.
