Notes from the Village

Released: September 8th, 2008

"Through all of her efforts as a leader there's hardly a speck of filler, but rather a wealth of ideas and the desire to expand the purview of her instrument beyond putative traditional swing. In the liner notes, Ira Gitler deems her as transcendent and formidable, an apt description for the best modern jazz clarinetist in current-day jazz, and perfectly reflective of this excellent recording." - All Music

Rising jazz star Anat Cohen leads her New York all-star quartet through fresh originals, tunes by Fats Waller, John Coltrane, Sam Cooke and Ernesto Lecuona. This captivating, soulful album builds on Cohen’s acclaimed 2007 releases Noir and Poetica capturing the thrilling energy of her live shows, and proving her to be an artistically adventurous writer and performer.
