About


The music of pianist and composer Ari Erev 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.

New Album:   "Flow" (2016)


(Listen, Buy, Read more...)




"Flow" is a personal and artistically-performed album which combines percussive Latin rhythms and rich harmonies of post-bop Jazz with gentle and expressive piano touch.


"excellent new material,... 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..."

Project: "Open Possibilities"

The OPEN Group combines Latin-flavored jazz compositions with modern, straight ahead Jazz, creating a colorful set, full of variety and inspired playing.

Open Group in 'Ha-Ozen' club, Tel-Aviv

The band repertoire is mostly based on original compositions by the group's pianist and leader Ari Erev, mainly from his two latest albums "Flow" and "A Handful of Changes". The band also plays its own Jazz arrangements for a number of Israeli songs written by one of Israel's greatest composers - Alexander "Sasha" Argov, as well as its own interpretation for some Jazz standards.

Open Group in 'Ha-Ozen' club, Tel-Aviv
