Shai Maestro Trio was formed in July 2010 in Brooklyn after a music session at Maestro’s practice studio. The trio members are Peruvian bassist Jorge Roeder and Israeli drummer Ziv Ravitz. All reside in Brooklyn.
“Ziv organized a home session with Jorge, saying that he felt we all have to try to play together. And indeed, that session had this magic, this ’click’ that you rarely feel – the very basic feeling of deep mutual understanding”
“…Shai Maestro, obsessed with pacing, offers us dynamic music. The notes scroll in a continuous burst, his dialogue with his drummer is explosive, going from a ballad to offensive punk. Carefully avoiding engaging a riot of immature virtuosity, aptly named, Maestro imposes his style on the this thin line, sometimes romantic, but never in excess.”
