Anat Fort - Piano (Israel)
Gary Wang - Bass (USA)
Roland Schneider - Drums (Germany)
20 Years after their initial meeting in a rehearsal basement in the east village, the Anat Fort trio has hundreds of performances under its belt. The band, consisting of American bass player Gary Wang, German drummer Roland Schneider and Israeli pianist-composer Fort, has played New York jazz clubs for over two decades, gathering an extensive following in the whole metropolitan area. 9 years after their beginning, they spread apart: Roland moved to Berlin and Anat to Tel-Aviv. Gary is the only one who stayed in NY, but that has not stopped them from touring the US, Canada, Europe, China and Israel performing in all major venues such as Montreal jazz festival, JVC jazz festival, Blue Note, Birdland, Tel-Aviv Opera House, Israel festival, NDR in Hamburg, Duc Des Lombards in Paris, Porgy and Bess in Vienna, A-Trane in Berlin and many more. In 2010, the trio released their long-awaited first recording, And if, on the prestigious ECM Records label. The recording garnered international acclaim and was named one of the best 10 records of the year by “Slate” magazine. In 2016 they released Birdwatching on ECM Records as well. The recording, called "a subtle triumph" by the NY Times, features the trio in the company of Italian reed master Gianluigi Trovesi. The trio's new album, Colour, was produced by Anat herself. It sheds new light on the trio's diverse work and influences and captures it at its creative best. The new album on Sunnyside Records has been steadily gaining outstanding reviews worldwide. It is a great celebration of 20 years of close friendship and music spread over 3 continents.

Einer der Gründe, die den Zig Zag Jazzclub so einzigartig machen, ist, dass er der erste und einzige Jazzclub der Welt ist, dem es gelingt nur durch freiwilligem Eintritt/Crowdfunding Events von Weltklasse zu finanzieren. Und wie machen wir das? Ganz einfach. Während der Konzertpause geben wir bekannt, dass wir Geld einsammeln werden. Bei den meisten Konzerten (außer Jam Sessions) informieren wir unsere Kunden, dass ein Beitrag von ungefähr 15 Euro es uns erlaubt die Musiker gerecht zu bezahlen. Manche geben dabei mehr und andere weniger... und das ist auch in Ordnung. Wir haben auf diese Weise schon Hunderte Konzerte organisiert.
One of the reasons that makes the zig zag jazz club so unique is that it is the first and only jazz club in the world that manages to finance world class events through a crowd funding concept. How do we do it? Its quite simple… during the break of the concert we make an announcement regarding the collection for the evening. For most concerts (excluding the jam session) we inform our customers that a fee of around 15€ per person will allow us to fairly compensate the musicians. Some people give more and some give less… and that´s ok… we ´ve already successfully promoted hundreds of concerts like this!!!
