Anat Cohen: Musical Zelig

Read "Anat Cohen: Musical Zelig" reviewed by R.J. DeLuke

In the 1983 Woody Allen film Zelig, the pseudo-documentary's main character is a man who, out of a desire to fit in, takes on the characteristics of the people he happens to be around, including, in chameleon-like fashion, turning up as a black jazz musician in jny: Chicago. (The character, played by Allen, is white). Since arriving on the jny: New York City scene in 1999, via jny: Tel Aviv and the Berklee College of Music, Anat Cohen ...

Read "The Art of the Duo: Keys and Reeds" reviewed by Geno Thackara

Anat Cohen Tentet: Happy Song

Read "Happy Song" reviewed by Geno Thackara

In his fascinating autobiography, Miles Davis once said that Gil Evans would call him on the phone now and then just to share a quick thought--you know, the kind of thing some people used to do before these random impulses were relegated to texts or Tweets. His classic example was a 3AM call where his longtime friend and collaborator rang to say “If you're ever depressed, Miles, just listen to 'Springsville,'" and just as abruptly hung up. Anat ...
