Cover: Clarinetist Anat Cohen continues to raise her profile as an ambitious bandleader. The Anat Cohen Tentet's sophomore album is Triple Helix, a collaboration with composer and producer Oded Lev-Ari. Regarding her longtime collaborator, Cohen said, "Oded knows my playing as well as anyone, and he never reaches for the obvious, so there's an edge of surprise to whatever he does." Members of the band include Nick Finzer (trombone), Vitor Gonçalves (piano), Sheryl Bailey (guitar) and Anthony Pinciotti (drums).
