THE CLARINET IS NO LONGER FOR SQUARES
According to a recent article in the New York Times, that old school favorite, the clarinet, is back and not since the days of Benny Goodman has there been so much to do about a clarinet player. Her name is Anat Cohen, an Israeli living in New York who is also a well known sax player. Ms. Cohen said she started out on tenor sax wanting to be like Coltrane but, “when I play the clarinet I am 100 percent myself.”
– Her latest CD is, Claroscuro.
