About Anat Cohen, Wycliffe Gordon, and the 50/50 Jazz Orchestra

“[Cohen] tells stories from her own experiences that are so deeply felt that they are very likely to connect listeners to their own dreams, desires, and longings.” — Nat Hentoff

“[Gordon is] one of the premier trombonists of our time.” —New York Times

With blazing technique, expressive virtuosity, and a charismatic stage presence, Anat Cohen has been voted Clarinetist of the Year by the Jazz Journalists Association every year since 2007. Similarly, always topping the Trombonist of the Year and Critic’s Poll lists, Wycliffe Gordon is one of the foremost musical ambassadors and interpreters of America’s music. With unmatched mastery of the plunger mute, his exceptional technique and signature sound has solidified his place as one of the top trombonists of his generation. Accompanying these two jazz virtuosi is the SJW 50/50 Jazz Orchestra, SJW’s egalitarian ensemble of women and men who are among the top jazz artists in the Bay Area.
