On their debut recording as a duo Live In Healdsburg, Anat Cohen and Fred Hersch, two of most prolific and celebrated artists in jazz today display qualities they have in abundance: empathy, open hearts, big ears, quick instincts, and an ego-less approach to the music.
These two expert collaborators combine virtuosity and beauty, which permeates every note they play. Live In Healdsburg comes on the heels of Anat's Tentet recording, Happy Song, and her two Grammy nominated Brazilian albums, Outra Coisa: The Music of Moacir Santos (with 7-string guitarist Marcello Gonçalves) and Rosa Dos Ventos (with Trio Brasileiro).
For Fred Hersch, Live In Healdsburg is the follow up recording to his latest CD, the double Grammy nominated Open Book (his 7th and 8th nominations). This album with Ms. Cohen is the latest release in a stunningly deep discography that dates back to the 1980s and encompasses more than twenty albums as a leader, and the publication of his autobiography Good Things Happen Slowly: A Life In and Out of Jazz.
