AllMusic Review by

Pianist Lynne Arriale continues to grow as a pianist and as an individualist with each recording. Arise is her strongest set to date. Her well-rounded program is highlighted by the blues "American Woman," the sensitive ballad "Arise," and a Latin romp during "Esperanza," but each of the nine selections (which include four of her originals) is rewarding. On the slower material, Arriale sometimes sounds a little like Keith Jarrett, but she has her own voice on the blues and the more intense pieces. Her close interplay with bassist Jay Anderson and drummer Steve Davis results in the three musicians often thinking as one. This is an excellent effort, making one look forward to Lynne Arriale's continuing musical growth.
