Rachael Cohen


Rachael Cohen (Shetland Islands, UK, 1990), a London-based alto saxophonist and composer, is one of the brightest emerging stars of her generation.  Her skills as a composer and improviser have gained her a great deal of attention in the UK and beyond. In 2006, Rachael won a scholarship to enroll in Jazz Studies at The Birmingham Conservatoire to study with Julian Siegel, Jean Toussaint, and the late Tony Levin, as well as with artists like Dave Holland, Lee Konitz and Donny McCaslin during their local engagements. Decorated and hailed as one of the most promising new names on the UK scene by both MOJO and The Guardian, Rachael continues to tour extensively across the UK with her own projects and has come to be a mainstay at London clubs such as Ronnie Scott’s.
