Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Anat Cohen's Clarinetwork - Live at the Village Vanguard, inspired by Benny Goodman and celebrating his centennial, is a musical tour-de-force. Winner of 3 consecutive Jazz Journalists Association "Clarinet Player of the Year" awards and multiple "Rising Star Clarinet" DownBeat critic's polls, Cohen leads an all star rhythm section (Benny Green, Peter Washington, Lewis Nash ) on this seminal live recording that returns the clarinet to its rightful role at the forefront of jazz.

Review

Never short on bluesiness and grit, Cohen
clearly knows how to wail, and she has never
sounded more nuanced. 4 stars. --Ed Enright, Downbeat

... was the starting point for this live-concert recording on the centennial of Goodman's birth. One can be sure that Goodman is an iconic figure for Anat Cohen, not only as a clarinetist but also as a jazz musician of Jewish heritage. Cohen was born in Tel Aviv and, like Goodman, classically trained, at the Berklee College of Music in Boston. Her physical virtuosity, both of finger-work and tone control, is phenomenal. The 'standards' recorded here are all familiar Benny Goodman classics; Anat Cohen nearly always launches them from Goodman's melodic base, and that's what you'll hear in the MP3 samples, those famous 'swing' riffs. But when you hear the whole tracks, you'll quickly realize that Goodman's stylizations are only the starting point for post-bebop improvisations of hard-driving physicality.

The clarinet has an odd history as a jazz instrument. It was a key player in the Dixieland combo, and Goodman made it the characteristic voice of "swing". But it never caught on as a blues instrument, and it was largely absent from sax-dominated bebop. West coast 'cool' jazz had Jimmy Giuffre on clarinet, but if anything, Giuffre's calculated sound reinforced that supposition that the clarinet was a 'white' instrument, too sedate and classical for real jazz. In fact, the clarinet was the "hot" instrument par excellence of another tradition, that of Eastern European and Balkan popular music, especially of the klezmorim. Benny Goodman was a scion of klezmer tradition, and Anat Cohen is another, though her tribute to klezmer music is to be heard only in her fiery improvisatory flights and not in any overt ethnic influences.

There's nothing especially innovative about Cohen's playing on this CD; it's just a skilled synthesis of swing and bebop.

Anat Cohen's recent release of Clarinetwork is her best outing on the clarinet. She mentions her homage to Benny Goodman in the jacket notes, and rightly so. He would highly praise her work. I think, however, in the upper register, Goodman's tone was more flowing and melodic; Anat's a bit more on the hard jazz side. This only shows that their individual styles are different, not that one is better than the other. Anat, however, is willing to run a blusey lick and work it into a gusty bop phrase. Goodman was more traditional, as he usually stayed away from this type of experimentation. Anyway, Anat, on the clarinet, is the REAL DEAL! It's just wonderful to see such exciting talent given to the "long lost" instrument of jazz. The young reed players emerging on the jazz scene today (like Anat Cohen and Grace Kelly) give us all encouragement that great jazz, expertly played, will be around for yet another generation to pass on.

Jazz standards, made to sound fresh and unusually exciting by this high-energy quartet. Maybe it is the venue, the one and only Village Vanguard. Anat Cohen plays her clarinet with so much energy and enthusiasm that it is impossible not to swing along. Veteran rhythm section Benny Green - Peter Washington - Lewis Nash provides a rock-solid foundation and Benny Green adds several enjoyable piano solos.

This is a terrific performance.
Anat Cohen, a real rising star, takes old standards and infuses them with wonderful new takes. Her technical skill and creativity are outstanding. She is supported brilliantly by her accompanying musicians, especially Benny Green, whose prowess on the piano is well known, both as a leader and accompaniest.His contributions on this disc are terrific.
In short, this is not to be missed.
