Anat Fort Trio - The Jain Concert Harlem in the Himalayas
Anat Fort, piano
Gary Wang, bass
Roland Schneider, drums
With Bill Evans, Keith Jarrett, Paul Bley, Elvis Costello, John Coltrane, and Egberto Gismonti among her many formative influences, Anat Fort's music can also subtly hint at her geographical origins. Born near Tel Aviv, she studied classical piano as a child and began improvising from an early age, all the while remaining open to the many musical sounds of her environment.
In the early 1990s, Anat came to the United States to study jazz, looking to balance a natural tendency towards freer playing with a firm grounding in the tradition. Her sojourn resulted in her self-produced debut album, Peel, and commissions to write for various ensembles including chamber and chorus and orchestra.
An important presence on the NYC alternative jazz scene and equally highly regarded in her homeland, Anat currently splits her time between Israel and the US and performs with bassist Gary Wang and drummer Roland Schneider in her touring band, the Anat Fort Trio.
