MAUCHA ADNET, who sang with grand maestro Antonio Carlos Jobim for the last ten years of his storied life, brings her radiant vocal style to the stage with her long-time musical partner Helio Alves, the little giant of Brazilan jazz piano. Joining them are master of tropical percussion Cyro Baptista and, for 2-3 songs per set, the great israeli saxophonist and clarinetist Anat Cohen.
Maucha Adnet appears August 6th for 2 shows.
ANAT COHEN, the phenomenal young Israeli clarinetist and saxophonist, celebrated in Brazil as a virtuoso player of “choro” music celebrates the New York Premiere of her “Choro Aventuroso” band from Tuesday-Sunday, August 20-25.
“Choro” (pronounced SHOH-roh) is described as “the New Orleans jazz of Brazil,” as it is folkloric, improvisational music dating from the early part of the 20th Century. Just like jazz, blues, and ragtime, “choro” melds formalized structures seamlessly with cultural elements from all over the world.
In “Choro Aventuroso” Anat Cohen will be collaborating with contemporary Brazilian and American musicians to create a passionate, swinging, and always colorful and compelling blend of jazz, samba, classic chorinhos and constant surprise.
