The trio emerged in 1999 and it was apparent to Schneider that the band was more than just a temporary project. He confided this to Fort over a lunch meeting and suggested that the trio rehearse on a weekly basis, which deeply moved the pianist. Thus began their regular schedule of rehearsing at a basement space in New York's East Village, organically honing their special musical identity.
The trio's work paid off and they began playing regularly around New York and grabbing the attention of the famed ECM Records, who would go on to release two albums of the group (Fort's ECM debut featuring the late great drummer Paul Motian and recently deceased clarinet master Perry Robinson was released in 2007). In 2008, Schneider moved back to Germany and Fort moved to Tel Aviv the following year. Even through this, the trio has continued, touring more and more throughout Europe and remaining as close as ever.
Personnel: Anat Fort (piano), Gary Wang (bass), Roland Schneider (drums)
