Jazz Night In America; Sunday @ 9:00 PM
Anat Cohen & Choro Aventuroso: Choro, which means “to cry” in Portuguese, is a genre often referred to as “The New Orleans Jazz of Brazil.” Israeli clarinetist and saxophonist Anat Cohen leads Choro Aventuroso, a culmination of both her affinity and intense study of Choro music as part of an international community of jazz players during her days studying at Berklee College of Music in Boston. Her group will play waltzes, mazurkas and African-Brazilian rhythms such as the Lundu, all of which help characterize the essence of Choro.
