“Flow” - the third album in a trilogy of themes, following the themes of “Time” (from the album “About Time”) and “Change” (from “A Handful of Changes” ).

In Flow, pianist-composer Ari Erev and his players pour fresh energies into the pool of sounds that nourish our world. They do so in accord with the hallmarks oIf personal expression, collaborative interplay and creative sophistication that characterizes jazz in all its glorious styles and forms. —Howard Mandel noted author, journalist and president of the Jazz Journalists Association
 
In this album, Erev continues his exploration of combining percussive Latin rhythms with the rich harmonies of post-bop Jazz, while still maintaining his gentle and expressive touch on the piano. The result is a personal and artistically-performed album based on Erev’s original tunes, and complemented by tunes by American pianist Fred Hersch, Brazilian pianist Debora Gurgel, and a tune by the distinguished Israeli composer Yohanan Zarai.

Erev dedicates “July, Again”, one of his original tunes, to the memory of bassist Udi Kazmirski, a close friend and member of his trio who passed away in 2012.

 
Some of the best Israeli Jazz musicians join Erev in this Trio/Quintet project: Bassist Eli Magen is one of the most appreciated musicians in Israel, with a long history of playing (and singing) with all the who’s and who’s in the Israeli Pop/Rock and Jazz domains, as well as a former double-bassist for the Israeli Philhar- monic orchestra. Magen brings to the project superb musicianship and his wonderful sound and melodic bass line, while drummer Ron Almog provides a solid pulse complemented with varied tensions.
 
Joining the trio on ve of the tunes are: Yuval Cohen (“3 Cohens”) on Soprano sax. who contributes his great musicianship and rich melodic lines, and Gilad Dobrecky on percussion, who adds a Latin touch, full of colors and imagination, to the mix.
