Anat Cohen and Choro Aventuroso

Coming up this week, 54 BELOW, the performance venue located just below the legendary Studio 54 at 254 West 54th Street, presents some of the brightest stars from Broadway, cabaret, jazz and beyond. 54 Below also launched its series of late night events. Joining Tuesday nights’ popular “Backstage” with Susie Mosher is 15:54, and more:

The phenomenal young Israeli clarinetist and saxophonist, Anat Cohen, celebrated in Brazil as a virtuoso player of “choro” music celebrates the New York Premiere of her “Choro Aventuroso” band at 54 Below from Tuesday-Sunday, August 20-25. “Choro” (pronounced SHOH-roh) is described as “the New Orleans jazz of Brazil,” as it is folkloric, improvisational music dating from the early part of the 20th Century. Just like jazz, blues, and ragtime, “choro” melds formalized structures seamlessly with cultural elements from all over the world. In “Choro Aventuroso” Anat Cohen will be collaborating with contemporary Brazilian and American musicians to create a passionate, swinging, and always colorful and compelling blend of jazz, samba, classic chorinhos and constant surprise. 54 Below celebrates Anat Cohen with a week long engagement that is not to be missed. For Friday and Saturday only, Anat will be joined by legendary Brazilian jazz singer Leny Andrade! Cover charge $25-35. $15 food & beverage minimum.
