SHALOSH TRIO (‘Markson Pianos Jazz Night’)
Thursday 26th May 2016
7:00pm – 11:00pm
As part of a bi-monthly collaboration with ‘Markson Pianos’ http://www.marksonpianos.com supplier of our wonderful grand piano, we showcase the best jazz pianists in an intimate club setting. Tonight we present the New York and Israel based Acoustic Progressive Jazz trio. The music that is being created by SHALOSH is characterized by its drama, its sophistication and its genre crossing in Jazz music. Despite the classic Jazz trio format (piano, bass and drums) and the band members’ deep root in Jazz and improvised music traditions, SHALOSH’s music takes its own path across and between genres like Rock, Groove, Classical, African and Middle Eastern music.
The three members of SHALOSH: GADI STERN piano, DANIEL BENHORIN bass & MATAN ASSAYAG drums are childhood friends who have been playing together since they started making music. After years of working separately and internationally both as side-men as well as band leaders, the three reunited this year in order to form a band. Following years of rare concerts in New York and Israel, the three recorded their debut album titled “The Bell Garden”. Already in their short time of activity, a huge buzz started generating around the project. The band’s agenda is to make music that moves its audience in the greatest way possible, in order to break through the barrier created, between the music and the listener, which is often found in intellectual music of this genre. The story behind this group is both special and relevant to its agenda. www.shalosh.net https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dooaJgkEzys&feature=youtu.be
