As a three-time Grammy nominee, Anat Cohen’s contributions to the jazz genre have garnered her widespread recognition and numerous accolades, including multiple wins in the DownBeat Critics Poll and JazzTimes Critics Poll.
Cohen’s performances are characterized by their infectious energy and captivating stage presence. Her mastery of the clarinet and saxophone, coupled with her ability to connect with audiences, has earned her critical acclaim and a world-wide fan base.
The award-winning, 17-piece Seattle Repertory Jazz Orchestra (SRJO) is the Northwest’s premier big band jazz ensemble, co-directed by drummer Clarence Acox, nationally recognized director of bands at Seattle’s Garfield High School, and saxophonist/arranger Michael Brockman, long-time faculty member at the University of Washington School of Music.
The ensemble includes many of the region’s best-loved jazz soloists and bandleaders, and their extensive and growing repertoire is drawn from the 100-year history of jazz, from turn-of-the-20th century ragtime to turn-of-the-21st century avant-garde.
Recently, the cities of Seattle and Kirkland and the state of Washington proclaimed October 4th “Seattle Repertory Jazz Orchestra Day” in honor of the organization’s achievements. Their newest compact disc, “Benny Carter’s Kansas City Suite,” which features narration from Clarence Acox and a performance by the late Hadley Caliman, was released in November 2014 and has already achieved wide sales throughout the region.
