​​When Anat Cohen and Marcello Gonçalves perform at SFJAZZ, the audience will be pulled inside their musical bubble. You should be able to hear a pin drop as the clarinetist and Rio-based 7-string guitarist delve into the luxurious Brazilian repertoire of samba and the Tropicalia movement. The special connection between these two players has been deepening since 2017, when they released Outra Coisa – The Music of Moacir Santos, their elegant exploration of songs by one of Brazil’s great composers. Nominated for a GRAMMY, the recording illustrates precisely why Cohen adores the duo format: “It’s very intimate,” she says. “You’re always so exposed when you’re playing duo, and there’s a lot of space and a lot of room for emotional expression.” Don’t be surprised if this SFJAZZ performance previews repertoire from the duo’s upcoming album, Reconvexo, which reimagines songs by Caetano Veloso, Gilberto Gil, Milton Nascimento, Dorival Caymmi and other Brazilian masters.

Raised in Israel, the GRAMMY-nominated multi-reedist has been a force on the New York jazz scene for nearly two decades. Her talents keep growing, as she absorbs swing, samba, Middle Eastern and classical influences into her organic and inviting concept. Her clarinet evokes “infectious joy,” says the New York Times, calling her “an improviser with gusto.”

What’s not to love about a young clarinetist and saxophonist who plays everything we love — modern jazz, world music, “hot” New Orleans style jazz — and does it all brilliantly?
