About





Facebook Artist Page
Youtube Channel Whatsapp Newsgroup

Jazz pianist and composer Ari Erev performs regularly in Israel and in Europe in Piano Solo or Trio settings.

His music blends a deep classical touch, producing an intimate, delicate and emotional style which is inspired by pianists such as Bill Evans, Kenny Barron and Fred Hersch, with an energetic, latin-oriented and rhythmic drive, such as those found with pianists Michel Camilo and Michell Petrucciani, to produce a mature voice of his own.



"a powerful fluid musical statement,... a remarkable performance from a gifted artist whose expressive playing style and clever compositions, elevate him as one of the finest pianists on the international jazz scene today."


"Beautiful Waltz, modulations that generate hope, bounties and consonance..."


"...Once in a while, an artist shines with the unalloyed beauty, accessibility and blitheness of their approach. ...compositional mastery... ...Flow certainly seems to catch the summertime mood with finesse."


"...a whole world of melody and improvisation... One of the most creative Israeli jazz albums I've listened to... Colorful, melodic music, full of emotion and sensitive playing. What else can one ask for?"    (Translated)


"...like an evolving (musical) suite of twelve parts... perfect solos which capture the essence of the album title. A high-class album, you would willingly repeat listening to."    (Translated)
