Anat Fort (Hebrew: ענת פורט‎‎; born March 8, 1970 near Tel Aviv) is an Israeli jazz, pianist and composer who has recorded several acclaimed albums and performed across Europe and the United States.[1]

Fort studied music at William Paterson University in New Jersey and moved to New York in 1996 to develop her skills in jazz improvisation under the guidance of pianist Paul Bley and study composition with Harold Seletsky before releasing her debut self-produced album Peel in 1999.[2] Her first album for ECM Records, A Long Story (2007) arose from an association with drummer Paul Motian.[3] This was followed by the first album by her regular working group - the Anat Fort Trio, And If, in 2010.[4]
