Anat Cohen, ‘Baião Da Esperança’

Here’s another track by a Cohen — one of the 3 Cohens, as a matter of fact. Anat is the clarinetist in the family, a sparkplug who has proven herself especially adept with Brazilian rhythm. “Baião Da Esperança” is the opening track of Rosa Dos Ventos, her irresistible new album with Trio Brasileiro.

Rosa Dos Ventos is one of two Brazilian albums that Cohen released this spring, along with Outra Coisa, featuring guitarist Marcello Gonçalves. It’s a celebration of choro, the popular Brazilian folk music, which Cohen has been playing for years. She is now in the midst of a tour with Trio Brasileiro; they play the Jazz Standard on Tuesday and Wednesday, before heading to Europe.
