In 2010 Arik was chosen by Israel’s Ministry of Culture and Sport for a six months artist in residence program at the Cité Internationale des Arts in Paris. During his Paris stay, Arik began collaborating with French musicians in trio format. Returning to Israel, Arik set about writing material for his first Trio recording, “Mostly Ballads”. Legendary drummer Buddy Rich said “jazz should be treated the same as classical music – it’s to be listened to.” His words certainly apply to this sterling effort from the Arik Strauss Trio.
