With Hamilton De Holanda, mandolin, and Anat Cohen, clarinet
Widely considered the top instrumentalist in Brazil (or in the U.S., the “Jimi Hendrix of bandolim”), Latin GRAMMY® Award nominee De Holanda has spent a career reinventing his instrument of choice, the 10-string mandolin. By masterfully interweaving choro, jazz, samba, and much more, De Holanda synthesizes traditional styles into an open framework that highlights his virtuosic abilities. This approach makes him a perfect match for the genre-crossing clarinetist Anat Cohen, whom The New York Times called “a revelation” after a recent performance at Dizzy’s Club Coca-Cola. Cohen has been voted Clarinetist of Year by the Jazz Journalists Assocation for six consecutive years, and she has topped both critics and readers polls in DownBeat magazine for the last several years. For a technically astounding set influenced by a global variety of genres, don’t miss this pair while they’re in New York.
