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 below.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
