ANAT COHEN PRESENTS "HAPPY SONG",
FEATURING HER SPIRITED NEW YORK TENTET


 

Anat’s latest release Happy Song, sees her drawing on diverse musical loves, from Brazilian music to African grooves, from vintage swing to touching ballads. Celebrated the world over for her expressive virtuosity and infectious charisma, Anat's never been more prolific and inspired, onstage and on record.

The Tentet of Happy Song boasts a richness, one that's full but also fleet and fizzing, with an open jazzy energy. The beautiful arrangements are by both Anat and Oded Lev-Ari, the latter also directing the band: Rubin Kodheli (cello), Nadje Noordhuis (trumpet & flugelhorn), Nick Finzer (trombone), Owen Broder (sax & clarinet), James Shipp (vibraphone & percussion), Vitor Gonçalves (piano & accordion), Sheryl Bailey (guitar), Tal Mashiach (bass) and Anthony Pinciotti (drums), plus Anat on solo clarinet.

The lyric beauty of her tone, easy fluidity of her technique and extroverted manner of her delivery make this music accessible to all.
