Not one, but three interview guests on today’s episode of The Jazz Hole with Linus! Trio Shalva is a a bold and genre-bending group formed by three jazz musicians, all born and raised in Israel, who first started playing together in New York City more than 7 years ago. Their collaboration creates a powerful new realm of music where Hebrew folk traditions and contemporary jazz are woven together seamlessly to create a fabric of sound that will transport any listener through time and space to a new Middle Eastern musical landscape.  Assaf Gleizner (piano, melodica), Koby Hayon (bass, guitar, oud) and Nadav Snir-Zelniker (drums, percussion) took the time to meet with Linus and talked about their trio, their compositions and their two albums Riding Alone and Breeza.
