Zurich Jazz Orchestra Vocal Artistry Series
After many years of collaboration, we would like to welcome singer and pianist Raphael Jost at the Jazzclub Moods. Thanks not only to his successful “Swinging Christmas” performances, the singer has become a fixture in our program. Raphael Jost has an unerring sense of interpretation, time and timbre and will sing jazz classics as well as his own pieces. He has arranged his music for the Zurich Jazz Orchestra and likes to sit down at the piano himself.
In addition to the premiere of a new composition by Raphael Jost especially for the Zurich Jazz Orchestra, we will celebrate another premiere: For the first time, Jost will sing at Moods under the band direction of Ed Partyka. Together with the ZJO, you can experience an entertaining evening swinging at its highest level. And: We are already looking forward to Jost’s solo performance of the Sinatra classic and “One for My Baby”, written by Great American Songbook composer Harold Arlen.
Raphael Jost, born in 1988, is a pianist, singer, songwriter and arranger and was awarded the Soloist Prize at the 4th European Young Jazz Award in Burghausen (D) while still a student at the Zurich University of the Arts. For his debut album he received the Swiss Jazz Award in 2015 with his band “Raphael Jost & lots of horns”. Since then, he has made a name for himself in the Swiss jazz scene. Concert tours have taken him to the Cheltenham Jazz Festival, the Jaffa International Jazz Festival Tel Aviv as well as to Germany, France, Sweden, and Japan.
