Anat Cohen/Fred Hersch Duo

Anat Cohen/Fred Hersch Duo

The Boise Jazz Society presents internationally-acclaimed clarinetist/saxophonist Anat Cohen in a rare duo appearance with pianist Fred Hersch, "…a pianist, composer and conceptualist of rare imaginative power," (Nate Chinen, The New York Times) in concert and a series of free, jazz forums and educational events. Sunday, March 18, 2018, Riverside Hotel Sapphire Room, Free, Boise Community Jazz Symposium, 4 - 5 pm, (All Students and Public Welcome), Concert, 7 - 9 pm, (Jazz Pasta Buffet Available $15, Doors open 6 pm), LIMITED TICKET AVAILABILITY, and Monday, March 19, 2018, Boise Jazz Society Educational Events featuring the Anat Cohen/Fred Hersch Duo, Boise State Morrison Center Recital Hall, Free, Jazz Inform-ance, 4 - 5:15 pm, Free, Jazz Clinics, 5:30 - 6:30 pm, (All Students and Public Welcome) Clarinetist-saxophonist Anat Cohen has won hearts and minds the world over with her expressive virtuosity and delightful stage presence. Reviewing one of Anat’s headlining sets with her quartet at the North See Jazz Festival, DownBeat said: “Cohen not only proved to be a woodwind revelation of dark tones and delicious lyricism, but also a dynamic bandleader who danced and shouted out encouragement to her group – whooping it up when pianist Jason Lindner followed her clarinet trills on a Latin-flavored number. . . With her dark, curly, shoulder-length hair swaying to the beat as she danced, she was a picture of joy.” The Jazz Journalists Association has voted Anat as Clarinetist of the Year nine years in a row, and she has topped both the Critics and Readers Polls in the clarinet category in DownBeat magazine every year since 2011. That’s not to mention years of being named Rising Star in the soprano and tenor saxophone categories in DownBeat, as well as for Jazz Artist of the Year. In 2009, ASCAP awarded Anat a Wall of Fame prize for composition and musicianship, among other honors. A select member of jazz’s piano pantheon, Fred Hersch is a pervasively influential creative force who has shaped the music’s course over more than three decades as an improviser, composer, educator, bandleader, collaborator and recording artist. A ten-time Grammy Award nominee, he continues to earn jazz’s most prestigious awards, including recent distinctions as a 2016 Doris Duke Artist, 2016 Jazz Pianist of the Year from the Jazz Journalists Association and the 2017 Prix Honorem de Jazz from L’Acádemie Charles Cros for the totality of his career.
