2017 FORT ADAMS LINEUP
SATURDAY AUGUST 4, 2018
Anat Cohen & Marcello Gonçalves
Clarinetist Anat Cohen and 7string guitarist Marcello Gonçalves team together in a series of intimate, lyrical duets based on groundbreaking compositions by Brazilian composer Moacir Santos. Breathtaking melodies, Brazilian grooves, and elements of jazz highlight the intricate talents of both Cohen and Gonçalves on their Grammy Award nominated album, Outra Coisa: The Music of Moacir Santos. DownBeat writes, “Outra Coisa is a duo album that achieves something very rare: It reduces the big band arrangements of the great Brazilian jazz composer Santos down to just two musicians…The mastery of the two musicians is such as to render additional instruments superfluous.” On stage, the duo’s joyful interplay is utterly captivating.
