Harvey From a great musical family, Anat shines brightly.From high
stepping dance beats to Brazilian grooves, this gal has it down. Music to put a smile on your face. Favorite track: Putty Boy Strut.

john greenwood because i can't seem to get enough of this wonderful music. I need more hours in the day so I can listen longer. Favorite track: Ima.

MarinusJ What I like about Anat's improvisations is that they never sound searching or unnecessarily strung out. They're always spot on. At first this record sounds a bit polished but after a few listens a beautiful, at times even danceable record reveals itself. I suppose that someone who drives the ideal line will cross the middle of the road every now and then. Favorite track: Putty Boy Strut.

Onstage or on record, the music of Anat Cohen positively glows – with virtuosity, with charisma, with the sheer joy of creation – and never more brightly than on her seventh album as a bandleader, Luminosa. On Luminosa, Anat plays dancing originals, interprets Brazilian classics by the likes of Milton Nascimento, and even re-imagines electronica as acoustica with an ingenious arrangement of a Flying Lotus tune. Members from Anat’s touring quartet – keyboardist Jason Lindner, bassist Joe Martin and drummer Daniel Freedman – appear on the album, as do guest guitarists Romero Lubambo and Gilad Hekselman, percussionist Gilmar Gomes and the Brazilian players of her new band Choro Aventuroso. Anat has been named the top clarinetist in both the readers and critics polls in DownBeat, the jazz bible, for multiple years running. And her fluency in the jazz tradition is utterly at one with her flair for Brazilian music. As the Brazilian Press has declared: “Anat is an Israeli who seems like a Brazilian when she plays samba.” A true citizen of the world, Anat speaks a universal language through her horn.
