Join us for a night of jazz, talk and wine, as we present Esperanza Spalding and Anat Cohen with performances and a conversation. Hailed as a prodigy on the acoustic double bass within months of first touching the instrument as a 15-year-old, Esperanza Spalding has emerged as a fine jazz bassist, but has also distinguished herself playing blues, funk, hip-hop, pop fusion, and Brazilian and Afro-Cuban styles as well, playing for President Obama and having a feature in The New Yorker. Anat Cohen is an Israeli jazz clarinetist, saxophonist and bandleader. Her debut album, Place & Time, was released in 2005 on Anzic Records. In 2007 she won the awards for Up and Coming Artist and Clarinetist of the Year from the Jazz Journalists Association. Cohen performs regularly and has appeared at a number of notable jazz festivals, such as the Montreal International Jazz Festival and the North Sea Jazz Festival. She also developed a notable work of research about Brazilian music, specially the Choro.
