Time for bed... and a song

The Jerusalem Post - - ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT - • By BARRY DAVIS

Ayelet Rose Got­tlieb and Anat Fort will be pound­ing a na­tion­wide mu­si­cal beat later this week when they perform a se­ries of gigs up and down the coun­try based on their new al­bum, Od Halo­mo­taim (Two More Dreams).

Vo­cal­ist Got­tlieb and pi­anist Fort are old pals and mu­si­cal spar­ring part­ners. They have per­formed to­gether nu­mer­ous times over the years, and the sim­patico el­e­ment is front and cen­ter on the al­bum. Both are ca­pa­ble of pro­duc­ing the most del­i­cate and sonorous of sonic lines, with Fort’s ad­ven­tur­ous key­board work seam­lessly aug­ment­ing and com­ple­ment­ing Got­tlieb’s ten­der vo­cal de­liv­ery.

Van­cou­ver-based, Jerusalem-born Got­tlieb be­came a mother just over three years ago, to twins, and is now a mom-of-three. Od Halo­mo­taim feeds off her ma­ter­nal in­stincts but, as she puts it, is “an in­ti­mate set of lul­la­bies for all ages.”

This is Got­tlieb and for­mer long­time New York res­i­dent Fort’s de­but record­ing as a duo, and they bring their rich, and di­verse, pro­fes­sional and life ex­pe­ri­ence to the vel­vety fore.

Be­twixt cozy gigs at var­i­ous homes across the coun­try, Got­tlieb and Fort will perform at Beit Hay­otzer in the Tel Aviv Port on Novem­ber 17 (2:30 p.m.), Beit Michal in Re­hovot on Novem­ber 23 (5 p.m.) and at The Studio Theater in Haifa on Novem­ber 25 (11 a.m.).
