"ISLAND FUN is a charming collection of smooth jazz. It features the work of multi-instrumentalist/composer David Arivett. There are 10 original songs on the CD. Each one is enjoyable and has a sweet, bluesy Latin sound, a sound that will bring David Arivett new jazz listeners. I liked the piano solo work very much; very smooth, very well-crafted. David Arivett has a winner with his "ISLAND FUN". Nicely done!" - (Lee Prosser, JazzReview.com)

Jazzed In Church!

The "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 include the vocal group Fresh Fire, saxophonist Larry Cangelosi, Keith Woods, and a full horn and rhythm section using Christian jazzers!) 

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!

( More information on David's Jazzed In Church songs/arrangements including complete charts and CD's can be found here.)
