Pianist and Composer Ari Erev has recently released his self produced CD "A Handful of Changes." The recording features Erev on piano, Gilad Dobrecky on percussion, Arie Volinez and Tal Ronen on bass, Eitan Itzcovich on drums and Ofer Shapiro on alto saxophone and clarinet. Most notably Joel Frahm appears on both tenor and soprano saxophone.
What strikes me most about this recording is Joel Frahm's wonderful soprano saxophone playing. Prior to this recording I was not familiar with what a full, centered sound Frahm possesses on soprano saxophone. His tenor saxophone playing is remarkable but I dare say I enjoy his soprano here better.
Whether a fan of Joel Frahm or just great saxophone playing, you will enjoy hearing his playing with Ari Erev on "A Handful of Changes."
