George W. Harris, Jazz Weekly

Sivan Arbel composes everything here and is backed by Shai  Portugaly/p, Pera Krstajic/b, Yogev Gabay/dr, Shai Wetzer/perc, Ron Warburg/tp, Jack Sheehan/as and Ori Jacobson/ts for these 7 compositions. Her voice is flexible, and is heartfelt when teamed with Portugaly on “Water Song” while getting bluesy for “Omri.” The horns go from elegiac on “Solitude” to dramatic on the intricate yet lyrical “Homesick” with her voice showing great range and depth during “Change.” Rich and original.
