A Handful of Changes Album (2012)
With the recording and release of his latest album - A Handful of Changes - pianist Ari Erev is taking his place as one of Israel's top modern jazz pianists and composers.
Featured mostly on his own originals during this project, plus two songs by Alexander Argov and a pair of jazz standards, Ari leads a program that includes a top-notch rhythm section, New York tenor-saxophonist Joel Frahm, and guest altoist and clarinetist Ofer Shapiro. The results are memorable....

“..Piano playing with a lot of elegance and sensitivity… it is evident it is performed with great love and with a thorough acquaintance and respect for the history of Jazz…”
--- Barak Weiss, Artistic Director, Tel-Aviv Jazz Festival
...Performance is absolutely spotless... presenting sophisticated and intelligent mainstream Jazz,... Ari's piano work that shines brightly and is exceptionally lovely throughout. His touch and intimate feel for the melody is absolutely gorgeous... the entire album is a feast from start to finish.
--- Adam Baruch, Jazzis.com
...a canvas of colours...(the) notes move from deep and pensive, filled with reminiscence and wistfulness an extended metaphor for time itself...
