07 February Weds – Marcello Maio Trio
$14.00 – $35.00
Wednesday 7 February 2018, 8.30pm
Come and enjoy the vibrant virtuosity of accordion player/pianist, composer and musical director Marcello Maio and his band.
Accomplished in piano, piano-accordion, keyboards and flute, Marcello Maio’s trademark musicianship and versatility across a range of musical genres has established him as a key player in some of Sydney’s most highly acclaimed Latin, Jazz and World music ensembles.
Always one to watch even at high school, Marcello completed his Bachelor of Music (Jazz performance) at Sydney Conservatorium a decade ago under Mike Nock, Judy Bailey and Matt McMahon. As a core member of the triple Aria award-winning gypsy-jazz band Monsieur Camembert since 2004, Marcello has performed internationally as well as at a myriad of notable Australian music festivals. He also performs regularly with Baby et Lulu, Brazilian trio Abuka and The catholics.
Raised in a musical family, Marcello regularly performs with his father Ross Maio (accordion virtuoso) in From Caruso to Bocelli and Viva La Fisarmonica Show. Equally at home with Brazilian and jazz styles as he is with European and African-American styles, Marcello composes for a range of projects, most notably his own trio and quartet projects, as well as his collaboration with Ngaiire and Samba Mundi; a Tango commission for Compass saxophone quartet; the soundtrack to the Australian film documentary ‘Tea with Madame Close’ and a series of arrangements and a composition for the vocal ensemble, Song Company.
Marcello is a hugely creative composer whose talents in this area will be very much on display tonight as his band performs his own original compositions, a selection of arrangements from the Great American Songbook and Brazilian standards.
Marcello’s flair and personality come to the fore as he slips effortlessly between the various genres and styles. Come along and get your toes tapping..
