Shai Maestro (1987) 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 Shai and his trio one of the most powerful and harmonious groups in the jazz today.

Shai will be releasing his fourth album in October 2018, debuting on the famous label ECM. Maestro began playing classical piano at age five under the instruction of Irena Krivatz and graduated with honors from the Thelma Yellin High School of Performing Arts in Givataim, Israel. After winning the National Jazz Ensembles Competition “Jazz Signs” in 2002 and 2003 and receiving excellency scholarships 2004-2010 from the America-Israel Cultural Fund for jazz piano, Maestro attended Berklee College of Music’s Five-Week Summer Performance Program in Boston, where he was awarded a full scholarship to attend Berklee full-time—an offer Maestro ultimately declined.

Meestal speel ik alsof ik op een blanco canvas schilder. Alles is mogelijk, ik kan noten en akkoorden veranderen, ik kan met de muziek experimenteren
