The Temple of Beautiful

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Ken Dryden
Israeli jazz violinist Miri Ben-Ari's second CD as a leader is a powerful live date recorded at the Blue Note in New York City.

"Caravan" may have been recorded countless times by others, but the youthful Ben-Ari takes this exotic standard in a new direction. Guest guitarist Ron Afiff is added for a turbocharged romp through Sonny Rollins' "Pent Up House" a favorite of Grappelli, while her passionate interpretation of Herbie Hancock's modal masterpiece "Maiden Voyage" will also turn heads. Her buoyant treatment of "I Let a Song Go Out of My Heart" showcases Kikoski with a series of brief breaks by Hass. Her enticing originals include the funky "The Temple of Beautiful," the Latin-flavored blues "Mother Shipton," and the soulful "Give Me Some." Highly recommended.
