KCR Releases Second CD by 9-Year-Old Israeli Jazz Pianist Ariel
(Published: July 31, 2007)
Kadima Collective Records releases Origami, the second CD of 9-year-old Israeli pianist, Ariel. The first CD, 31 Bars, also from KCR, featured Ariel's music at the age of 8. Origami shows Ariel a year later, this time alone at the piano. The music displays the influence of Ariel's favorite pianists -- Matthew Shipp, John Hicks, Gonzalo Rubalcaba, Bojan Z., Kirk Lightsey, Aaron Goldberg, and others. All but three of the tunes are Ariel's original music.
Ariel is a student at the Jerusalem Conservatory of Music, where he studies classical piano, violin, and composition. He is also experimenting on his own with guitar, double bass, drums, and electronic music. His main interest lies in combining classical forms of jazz with avant-garde and free improvisational techniques.
Origami is available from Ariel's site at the website at www.arielpiano.com.
