Umbria Jazz
Varie sedi
Perugia
13-22.07.2018

Umbria Jazz 2018 ha chiuso i battenti: 1 milione 450 mila euro di incassi da biglietti e merchandising con 35.000 paganti. Numeri invidiabili, da capogiro, anche se un bilancio ragionato fra entrate e uscite richiederebbe un'analisi molto più approfondita.
Come abbiamo anticipato nella ...

Anat Cohen - Fred Hersch: Live In Healdsburg

Read "Live In Healdsburg" reviewed by Doug Collette

Equally distinctive as they are, the respective instrumental styles of pianist Fred Hersch and clarinetist Anat Cohen are almost mirror images of each other. That is, the former is generally a formal, dignified presence on his instrument, yet he has a readily discernible playful side that comes out at regular intervals. The latter, on the other ...

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).

Anat Cohen: Happy Song

Read "Happy Song" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi

Il 2017 è stato un anno superlativo per Anat Cohen. Nuovamente eletta migliore clarinettista nei referendum di critica e di pubblico di Down Beat, ha pubblicato due splendidi album di musica brasiliana (Rosa dos Ventos e Outra Coisa rispettivamente col Trio Brasileiro e con Marcello Gonçalves) e ha chiuso l'anno con il debutto di questo tentet ...

It's a 20th anniversary vintage year for the Healdsburg Jazz Festival, pouring over the first ten days of this coming June, in the Sonoma County “wine country" 70 miles north of jny:San Francisco.

Jazz House Kids: The House that Jazz Built

Read "Jazz House Kids:  The House that Jazz Built" reviewed by Bob Kenselaar

When we think of jazz education, we might first think about what's developed at the college level and at music conservatories over the last fifty years or so, and then maybe consider how jazz instruction and jazz bands have flourished at the high school and middle school levels a little more recently. But beyond these settings, ...

The Art of the Duo: Keys and Reeds

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

Two duos, both alike in dignity, though taking the approach to very different ends:

Anat Cohen and Fred Hersch
Live in Healdsburg
Anzic Records
2018

What's taken these two so long? Okay, of course they've both juggled collaborations and cross-pollinations in many different contexts, and considering the nature ...

Anat Cohen/Fred Hersch: Live In Healdsburg

Read "Live In Healdsburg" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

When you think of these two lauded artists, duo encounters aren't the first thing likely to come to mind. Pianist Fred Hersch spends most of his time toggling between solo and trio work, and it's almost impossible to keep up with the size and/or scope of clarinetist Anat Cohen's varied pursuits. But that's not to say ...
