Young Israeli clarinetist Anat Cohen, "one of the brightest, most original young instrumentalists in jazz" (The Washington Post), is joined by Mulgrew Miller, piano, Peter Washington, bass, and Lewis Nash, drums to present a rousing tribute to Benny Goodman that celebrates his centennial. Winner of three consecutive Jazz Journalists Association "Clarinet Player of the Year" awards and multiple "Rising Star Clarinet" DownBeat critic's polls, Cohen brings her band Clarinetwork with the goal of returning the clarinet to its rightful role at the forefront of jazz. DownBeat says "Never short on bluesiness and grit, Cohen clearly knows how to wail, and she has never sounded more nuanced."
