Cry Me A River never sounded better:
Anat Cohen is an Israeli jazz clarinetist, saxophonist and bandleader.http://en.wikipedia.org/...
Cohen went to the United States in 1996. 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. She was also voted Clarinetist of the Year in 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, and 2012 and honored as the inaugural "Multi-Reedist of The Year" in 2012.
When most of us think of jazz, we think trumpets, trombones, saxophones and -- Hi, there, Satch -- cornets.
In fact, the last brilliant jazz clarinetist I can think of is Artie Shaw:
Arthur Jacob Arshawsky (May 23, 1910 – December 30, 2004), commonly known by his stage name, Artie Shaw, was an American clarinetist, composer, and bandleader. Also an author, Shaw wrote both fiction and non-fiction.http://en.wikipedia.org/...
Widely regarded as "one of jazz's finest clarinetists," Shaw led one of the United States' most popular big bands in the late 1930s through the early 1940s. Their signature song, a 1938 version of Cole Porter's "Begin the Beguine", was a wildly successful single and one of the era's defining recordings. Musically restless, Shaw was also an early proponent of Third Stream, which blended classical and jazz, and recorded some small-group sessions that flirted with be-bop before retiring from music in 1954.
