RAPHAEL JOST & LOTS OF HORNS / QUINTETT

"Raphael Jost is that rarest of birds: A singer/songwriter with a great voice and great songs, who's also an instrumentalist capable of sharing the stage with the best. Jost is the complete package." - Will Vinson (British Jazz saxophone player)

He’s a singer, pianist, song-writer, arranger and band leader, only 29 years of age and in 2015 he was honoured with the Swiss Jazz Award – there’s no doubt: Raphael Jost can be described as an exceptional talent. He’s got a surprisingly powerful and warm voice and knows how to blur the boundaries between jazz and pop better than anyone else.

With his „lots of horns“-band Jost presents mostly original songs in which he proves a great sense for catchy melodies and his undoubted skills as an arranger. He enjoys crooning like Frank Sinatra and at the same time isn’t afraid of giving a complete overhaul to some of his favourite pop songs - always surrounded by a horn section consisting of five outstanding soloists which all together are able to sound like a massive big band.

Line-Up:
Raphael Jost - voc, piano
Lukas Thöni - trumpet / flugelhorn
Florian Egli - alto sax / flute
Christoph Grab - tenor sax
Lukas Wyss - trombone
Nils Fischer - baritone sax / bass clarinet
Raphael Walser - double bass
Maxime Paratte - drums

RAPHAEL JOST STANDARDS TRIO

Raphael Jost, Raphael Walser and Jonas Ruther – three aspiring young musicians who have all made their mark on the Swiss jazz scene. They all write and arrange songs for their bands but together they share one big passion: The interpretation of standards in a manner that is rather unusual for musicians at their age.

Some of the most outstanding piano trios in jazz history such as Monty Alexander‘s, Oscar Peterson‘s or Ahmad Jamal‘s act as models when Jost, Walser and Ruther are about to revive those old songs with playful ease. With more than hundred concerts together, they delight the audience with a vivid interplay and their energetic swing feel.

The fact that pianist Raphael Jost is also a talented singer reminding of legends like Nat King Cole or Frank Sinatra makes this trio a band that has no equal among the Swiss musical landscape.

Line-Up:
Raphael Jost - voc, piano
Raphael Walser - bass
Jonas Ruther - drums

 
 

ABOUT

Raphael Jost (*1988) is a singer, pianist, song-writer, arranger and band leader, only 29 years of age and in 2015 he won the Swiss Jazz Award – there is no doubt Raphael Jost is an exceptional talent.
When being a teenager, Jost, who grew up in a small village in the north-east of Switzerland, wouldn’t have thought that he once would discover his love for jazz music. Elton John or Michael Jackson were the names of the composers whose songs he played on the piano in his early ages. Only when British singer and pianist Jamie Cullum with his mix between jazz and pop opened up a new musical world for him, Jost, who then was 18 years old, started to listen to jazz music.

In the meantime, Raphael Jost graduated from Zurich University of Arts where he studied jazz piano with Andy Harder and enjoys playing both pop and jazz. It’s his sense for catchy melodies, his versatile arranging skills and his virtuosity on the piano and with his voice that make Jost „that rarest of birds“, as British saxophonist Will Vinson described him.

With his band, Raphael Jost already got the chance to play big festivals such as Montreux Jazz Festival, Blue Balls Festival Lucerne and Jazzfestival Schaffhausen. The Soloist Prize at the European Young Artists‘ Jazz Award 2012 in Burghausen shows that Jost’s music is also able to delight audiences outside of Switzerland. Joe Viera, the president of the jury, remarked: „With this prize we also want to point to the big future prospects this extraordinary talent has.“

  • Pepe Lienhard zum Gewinn des Swiss Jazz Award 2015
    Ich habe Raphael Jost zum ersten mal gesehen, aber er hat mich live restlos überzeugt. Er hat eine tolle Stimme, schreibt eigene, originelle Arrangements und sein Umgang mit Jazz-Standards ist für ein Musiker seines Alters sehr erstaunlich. Dabei kopiert er nicht einfach Sinatra und andere Grössen, sondern gibt der Musik eine eigene Note. Dazu kommt ein kräftiger Schuss Entertainment. Ich bin überzeugt, dass wir von ihm noch sehr viel hören werden.

  • OVB Online
    Gleich nach den ersten Takten hatte sich der Schweizer in die Herzen der Zuhörer gespielt - und gesungen. Dafür sorgte eine gute stimmliche Präsenz und ein sympathisches Auftreten. Ob mit Balladen oder etwas flotteren Stücken: die Spielfreude war den Eidgenossen anzumerken und übertrug sich auf das Publikum.
