Editorial Reviews

Product Description

4 stars from Down Beat and the rave that this album 'could be a classic,' Cohen s ten-song program unfolds like a timeless pan-American epic film score. Joined by the Anzic Orchestra an all-star ensemble comprising three woodwinds, three trumpets, two trombones, three cellos, a guitar-bass-drums-percussion rhythm section and features performances by Ted Nash, Ali Jackson, Scott Robinson and others.
One of Paste Magazine's Top 100 Albums Of 2007.


Noir could be a classic ... [Cohen's] stately intonation and unforced elegance on clarinet could take her to the top. --DownBeat Magazine, May 2007

The arrangements [on Noir] are outstanding --Billboard Magazine

Four and a half ASCENDANT Stars!! Anat Cohen has literally burst onto the tough New York jazz scene, for some of us, and this great recording is a reflection of who she is (a wonderful young multi-instrumental jazz player), what she can do (she won the Rising Star award for clarinet and placed highly on the rising star polls for tenor sax and soprano sax in the DownBeat Critics Poll for 2007), and where she is (her orchestra and quartet played the famous NYC Village Vanguard for 5 days and dazzled this always discriminating jazz crowd.) In truth, it took the Berklee alum 9 years of paying dues and immersing herself in the NY scene of world music, traditional jazz, bebop, and beyond, to reach this point. This excellent recording of her orchestra, her horns, and her music is the first of two CDs she is producing and releasing in 2007 on her own Anzic label, a feat in itself. "Noir" captures Anat's clarinet, alto, tenor and soprano saxes as well as her Anzic Orchestra, which is brass and reed heavy with a rhythm section that substitutes guitar for piano, and has an integrated cello section: all creating a band of size and power with some unusual and tasty sonic colorations. The eclectic selections go from Julie London and Johnny Rae to Sun Ra and Johnny Griffin, with some Bonfa to reinforce her keen interest in Brazilian music (she's also a member of a brazilian 'choro' group: that's a long way from her native Tel Aviv roots). These orchestral performances with soloists show that these representatives of the young jazz generation have not only absorbed the big band influences of such masters as Ellington and Kenton, but also the calm waters of the 'third stream' influences of "the French Horn Player" (Gunther Schuller) and the Mingus-ian avant-garde school of orchestral fireworks.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome! September 9, 2008
Format:Audio CD
I encountered this CD while looking through a list of saxophonist Ted Nash's recordings. I didn't find a lot of Nash's playing here, but I like what I found just as well. Cohen's jazz orchestra combines elements of Ellington, Maria Schneider, and klezmer to create a fully unique sound. The music should appeal both to fans of traditional big band as well as those interested in more cutting edge jazz. The play of the orchestra as a group is mixed well with lots of solos. Cohen, herself, takes a lot of playing space and her playing is superb. It is pretty rare for clarinet to be front and center in a big band album (Don Byron's "Bug Music"--also an amazing album--is the only other example I can think of) and Cohen pulls it off with both grace and virtuosity. The sound quality of this recording is excellent; you can really hear all of the individual instruments. Cohen's compositions are truly one of a kind and the spirited playing of this orchestra make this album a must have for any fan of large ensemble jazz.

5.0 out of 5 stars Anat Cohen takes the clarinet to new places. January 10, 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Anat Cohen is the next Benny Goodman although being Jewish and playing the clarinet are probably the only things they have in common. I love it when she plays familiar songs and takes them to new places while still respecting the melody.

I get to hear a lot of talent these days. People who have mastered it all - including people like Anat's brother Avishai. But it's very rare that you get to hear such talent coupled with powerful emotion and superb control - which is what, according to me is real music. Anat's music is the kind that gets to your bones. This album is special - her best.
