(Yakir Arbib) traverse l’histoire de la musique et du piano à
la vitesse d’un TGV.

Jazz magazine

Imaginez Duke Elligton jouant du Schumann, Martial Solal en
train d’improviser sur un air de bastringue, ou encore Coltrane
revisité par Debussy, et vous commencerez à vous faire une idée du génie de Yakir Arbib.

Louis-Julien Nicolaou for Télérama

(Yakir Arbib) est un artiste sidérant de liberté et d’audace.

Louis-Julien Nicolaou for Télérama

Dans cet album solo, sa sonorité pleine, étincelante, et sa virtuosité effrénée s’épanouissent avec une passion innocente, comme une timidité vaincue, où l’humour et la gaieté ont heureusement leur place.

Louis-Julien Nicolaou for Télérama

The show when I was there was stolen by a ten minute solo performance from Yakir Arbib – powerful and energetic and full of references and musical statements …. for once the noisy audience stopped talking and listened.

Wulf Mueller - Sony/OKeh Records

Yakir Arbib performed with intense focus and a lively touch

Lev Bratishenko - The Montreal Gazette

I never heard something like this before.

Barry Harris

Remarkable improvisation from a pair of musicians with an almost
telepathic connection. Two players worth keeping an eye on,
individually and collectively.

Mark Sullivan - All About Music

Arbib is not limited to jazz pursuits and has been proving himself to
be a classical composer of striking potential.
