1. Jazz clarinetist Anat Cohen speaks to Fresh Air about playing with a lot of breath in her sound:

When you play jazz, I think, that the search for expression — that’s what it’s about. And if I want to say something and whisper it … the air has an effect. It’s like you’re talking to someone, and you speak with more air in your voice. It gives a certain feeling. So it’s just another vocabulary of sounds.

  1. Jazz clarinetist Anat Cohen tells Terry Gross how the singing style of cantors influenced her playing:

Cantors have an influence on anybody that listens, that is there. Because here is someone that is speaking out of their hearts and using one single melody and all they do is express it in the most heartfelt way and as a jazz musician or as any musician of course it would have an influence, I mean that’s what I try to do when I play music , when I play any music, when I play a cadence at the end of a song you want to take one note and make it meaningful and if you hear a cantor and they’re doing it right, you’re going to be so moved.
