“With Upto Here | From Here she stretches out with very strong originals in the presence of some NYC jazz stalwarts: drummer Take Toriyama, bassist Ed Schuller, pianist Anat Fort, saxophonist Loren Stillman and trumpeter Avishai Cohen. This modern jazz session highlights her voice as an integral instrument in what becomes a texturally heady setting.”

In this 2009 release Ayelet presents her compositions to texts by Dr. MLK, John Cage and Rumi, her own lyrics & a cover to the classic jazz standard The Nearness of You. Sung primarily in English, Ayelet presents a very personal album. The final title, Venezia, is the only song performed in Hebrew. It is dedicated to her grandmother, whose voice is embedded into the track. With knotty improvisations by a stellar band and lyrics ranging from contemplative to playful, Ayelet brings forth a unique jazz album.
