Erev, Ari: A Handful of Changes

Native Israeli, Ari Erev, is a master pianist, who, with the release of "A Handful of Changes", has composed an incredibly complex piece of jazz piano music, mixed well with Latin rhythms and classical orchestration.

As Erev says, "My music has evolved during the past few years," says Ari. "The new CD combines the intimate, delicate and emotional style heard in my first album with some more energetic and Latin-oriented performances."

His experience playing in a trio, helped him to expand his work with tenor-saxophonist Joel Frahm, bassist Arie Volinez and drummer Eitan Itzcovich. They all contribute well to this album. Tal Ronen adds bass to three of the tracks on the album. Erev also adds special guest Ofer Shapiro who plays alto on "Precious Present" and clarinet on "Light in Your Window."

This is a wonderfully relaxing and reflective album of music that fits very well on a Saturday or Sunday morning. It is well composed and the guest artists add a full and dynamic scale to the intricate piano playing of Erev.
