Sunny and warm, with a unique mixture of tropical jazz tunes with a bluesy funky twist! Take your shoes off, and get ready to dance and celebrate with this new release from Songs Of David!".

  

 "ISLAND FUN is a charming collection of Latin jazz. It features the work of pianist/composer David Arivett. The overall vibe is most enjoyable and has a sweet, bluesy/funky Latin jazz sound, a sound that will bring David Arivett many new listeners. Songs include, "Time To Celebrate," "Rio,"  "Lift Up De' Lord," "Island Fun," and others. Cover tunes include "Mezambo" (Ronnie Cuber) and "Beauty And The Beast" (Herbie Hancock). The listening audience will find this collection very enjoyable. I really loved the horns, especially the saxophones & piano solo work very much; very smooth, very well-crafted... David has a winner with his ISLAND FUN. It is a CD collection of tropical jazz that will appeal to a diverse audience of jazz listeners. Nicely done!" - Lee Prosser, JazzReview.com

Keyboard Meditations   

"Be ready to be transported to a peaceful and serene place with Keyboard Meditations by David Arivett. David's music definitely has therapeutic qualities! Beautiful pianos and lush orchestral pads compliment his wonderful compositions and skilled keyboard playing".  

"Our radio program 'Alpha Rhythms' is dedicated to music that takes you places, and David Arivett's "Keyboard Meditations" CD does just that! Each piece of music carries the listener to where spirit and emotion are the ruling forces. 'Keyboard Meditations' is aptly named in that it is a remarkably contemplative CD. From the masterpiece compositions, Broken, Mysterious Wonder and First Snow, through Arivett's Adagio for Strings, we are treated to numerous 'sound'scapes that invoke distinct moods and make the inner journey accessible for the listener. Thanks for providing our listeners with your music, and good luck with future projects!"

    Jazzed In Church CD's                     

"Jazzed In Church" series of arrangements/recordings was born out of many jazz concerts done over a period of years performed in a church setting by Pianist/Composer David Arivett. (Recordings of these arrangements includes the vocal group SpiritJazz, saxophonist Larry Cangelosi, Keith Woods, and a full horn and rhythm section) 

There are up tempo swing, Latin, funk, and contemporary jazz. There are also slower ballads for quiet times. These songs have proven themselves to be very effective both lyrically and musically for use in a church setting, vespers, or concert. 

Pianist/Composer David Arivett has written and/or arranged all the songs in this series!
