Best of 2018 #31: Anat Cohen & Fred Hersch – “Live in Healdsburg”
When I included this recording in my Best Jazz Albums of 2018 column on The Bandcamp Daily, I stated, “this album should also inspire gratefulness—that somebody was there to hit a record button, and that the world includes musicians capable of creating a sublime beauty in the suddenness of a single moment in time.” Those words not only summed up my feelings as the year came to an end, but also represented the joy I felt the first time I heard the recording. The night Anat Cohen and Fred Hersch gave this performance at the 2016 Healdsburg Jazz Festival, it showed us at our best.
Released on Anzic Records.
