Shai Maestro is one of the most promising and talented pianists of his generation. Since his debut with his own trio in 2011, Shai has shaped a strong and unique personal identity and has portrayed an incredible musical fluidity, making him and his band one of the most powerful and harmonious groups in the jazz world today.
On Shai’s sixth album, Human, Maestro’s outgoing, highly communicative band with fellow Israeli Ofri Nehemya on drums and Peruvian bassist Jorge Roeder becomes a quartet with the inspired addition of US trumpeter Philip Dizack.
Shai Maestro was invited to perform with Tokyo Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Keitaro Harada at Tokyo Metropolitan Theater in August 2019. The programme consisted of Miho Hazama’s First Piano Concerto as well as Shai’s original music.
‘Hearing Shai Maestro is like awakening to a new world.’ (All About Jazz)
Opening the show is singer and bandleader Ranjana Ghatak who grew up within classical Indian vocal music but has evolved a glorious style of her own that’s all about contemporary Britain, juxtaposing the beauty of sacred Indian vocal music with the driving improvised rhythms of contemporary music. She’s worked with Akram Khan, Nitin Sawhney, and the London Philharmonic Orchestra, and played with Seb Rochford from Polar Bear and beatboxer Jason Singh.
