Allison Miller Quartet featuring Anat Cohen
 








A true drum original from bop to pop.

Described by critics as a charismatic and rhythmically propulsive drummer with melodic sensibility, Allison Miller has been named “Rising Star Drummer” and “Top 20 Jazz Drummers” in Downbeat Magazine’s acclaimed Critics Poll. And you can tell a lot about the ingenious drummer Allison by the company she keeps: pop chanteuse Natalie Merchant, jazz organ legend Dr. Lonnie Smith, avant-garde trailblazer Marty Ehrlich, and tonight: the amazing woodwind virtuoso Anat Cohen. Allison has that uncanny blend of sensitive melodic playing and a rock-solid pulse. A three-time Jazz Ambassador of the U.S. State Department, she delivers an anything-can-happen excitement coupled with deep pocket grooves that hit the “on” switch for improvisers and audiences the world over.
