With The Anat Cohen Tentet, woodwind virtuoso Anat Cohen brings audiences an evocative and exciting experience centered around the clarinet. Both on stage and on Cohen’s release, Happy Song, the Tentet weaves a tapestry of sounds, freeing Cohen to explore the full range of the clarinet’s dynamics and demonstrate its vastly expressive character. As JazzTimes says, “With the clarinet she becomes a singer, a dancer, a poet, a mad scientist, laughing – musically – with the sheer delight of reaching that new place, that new feeling, with each chorus.” The Tentet’s repertoire draws on Anat’s diverse musical loves, from Brazilian music to African grooves, and from vintage swing to touching ballads. Above all, Happy Song is another synergistic collaboration between Anat and co-producer/co-arranger Oded Lev-Ari, who is her partner in Anzic Records and who has been a kindred spirit since their high school days in Israel. The Tentet looks forward to the release of a new album in 2019.


"What’s not to love about a young clarinetist and saxophonist who plays everything we love—modern jazz, world music, “hot” New Orleans style jazz—and does it all brilliantly?"

"This is the kind of music — warm, human, diverse and irresistible — that will not only bring the clarinet back into favor, but jazz itself."

"A present day multicultural wonder… An enthralling clarinetist and a persuasive saxophonist, [Anat Cohen] displays a pan-historical, pan-cultural approach to jazz."

Jeremy Davenport

Jeremy Davenport infuses a unique style of storytelling with original lyrics and music, creating not only a modern edge, but also a feeling reminiscent of the time when jazz was at its peak of popularity. Davenport, a St. Louis native, studied and played with members and guests of the Symphony, which included an early introduction to Wynton Marsalis. A member of Harry Connick, Jr.’s big band for six years, Davenport now tours the world, plays regularly in New Orleans, and returns home annually for this Thanksgiving tradition at Jazz St. Louis.

SOUND OF THE TRUMPET: AN EVAN HORNE MYSTERY BY BILL MOODY

Out of print and not available at Left Bank Books

The sound and the fury…

On a dark night in Pennsylvania, a jazz legend met his death.  But now, in the heat and light of Las Vegas, the sound of Clifford Brown’s soaring trumpet is coming back to life.  Because a man named Evan Horne, who knows all about jazz and pain, is unraveling a puzzle that reaches back forty years to Brown’s last hours–and that has already gotten one person killed.

Horne was called to Las Vegas to authenticate some recordings purported to be the lost tapes of Clifford Brown. But when a murder interrupts his listening session, Horne becomes the key player in a dangerous duet.  Carrying a worn old trumpet that may have belonged to Clifford Brown himself, Horne is pursuing the truth behind an audiotape that may be worth a fortune, may be a hoax and may be just one haunting melody in a killer’s murderous obsession. . .
