Anat Fort On Piano Jazz

Anat Fort

Israeli-born pianist, composer, and arranger Anat Fort is classically trained but is also well-studied in jazz improvisation. A prolific composer, her musical worlds come together in elegant and often intense tunes, and she has been commissioned to write work for both orchestra and jazz settings. In this 2007 Piano Jazz session, Fort performs her originals, including "Just Now" and "Something about Camels," before joining Marian McPartland on "Softly as in a Morning Sunrise."

Originally broadcast in the fall of 2007.
