 Island Fun

 

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. Songs include "Time To Celebrate," "Rio," "Rico's Tune," "I Love You So," "She Gives Me Joy," "I Need Your Touch," "Lift Up Your Glass," "Island Fun," "Miles' Blues," and "Better Days." The listening audience will find this collection enjoyable, and a nice gift for a friend. I liked the piano solo work very much; very smooth, very well-crafted.

David Arivett has a winner with his ISLAND FUN. It is a CD collection of smooth jazz that will appeal to the jazz audience. Nicely done.

           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 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!"
