Anat Cohen


Anat Cohen is a young clarinetist and saxophonist whose reputation just keeps growing. Voted Clarinetist of the Year six years in a row by the Jazz Journalists Association, Anat is helping to bring the clarinet back as a lead instrument in jazz.

Anat is also an expert Brazilian Choro player. That comes from playing and studying with the international community of jazz musicians out of Boston’s Berklee College of Music.

Choro


Choro is called “The New Orleans Jazz of Brazil.” It came out of the blending of European and African musics in 19th century Rio de Janeiro. “Choro” means a cry or lament, but it has a happy syncopated feel like ragtime. Improvisation is important in choro and that makes it jazz.

Choro started as house party music in Rio around the 1880s. It was popularized by printed sheet music and later on the first Brazilian phonograph records. Radio took choro mainstream in the 1930s-40s until samba became the most popular Brazilian music in the 1950s-60s.

To this ear, choro sounds like New Orleans with an accent. You can hear a certain driving energy in the choro rhythms. It’s the sound of jungle ants. Once they get moving, jungle ants keep on marching until there is just nothing left.

Choro Aventuroso


Choro Aventuroso features Vitor Gonçalves on accordion and piano, Cesar Garabini on 7-string guitar, and Serginho on pandeiro, a Brazilian tambourine.
