Ari Erev

Jazz Pianist, arranger and band leader.

Music

The music of pianist and composer Ari Erev blends a deep classical touch, producing an intimate, delicate and emotional style 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.

Albums

The recording of “Flow”, his latest album, establishes pianist Ari Erev as one of Israel's most melodic and sensitive modern jazz pianists and composers. Featured mostly on his own originals in this project, Ari leads a program that includes a top-notch rhythm section and guest soprano saxophonist Yuval Cohen, and creates a personal and artistically-performed album, continuing his exploration of combining percussive Latin rhythms with the rich harmonies of post-bop Jazz.
