I’ve fallen for the Israeli jazz pianist Anat Fort. Her new album from ECM has me hooked. In the car, at work, or home…I’m listening.
And If…. Anat Fort Trio, with Gary Wang on double-bass and Roland Schneider drums.
Anat Fort is new to me (that’s why I haunt ECM—there are always artists to discover.) And If has mystical effects. Visions of the Middle East echo here. I’m transported past courtyards glowing at dusk… down shadowy, sand-swept alleyways.. The journey becomes a narrative full of possibilities.
Music leading to an oasis.
I know that’s abstract but it’s like discovering a muse. You just have to listen and you’ll write your own text.
