Raphael Jost & lots of horns Short Info

He’s a singer, pianist, song-writer, arranger and band leader, only 27 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.

"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 saxophonist)

Er ist Sänger, Pianist, Songwriter, Arrangeur und Bandleader, gerade mal 27 Jahre alt und wurde 2015 mit dem Swiss Jazz Award ausgezeichnet - Raphael Jost kann getrost als Ausnahmetalent bezeichnet werden. Er überrascht mit seiner kraftvollen, warmen Stimme und versteht es wie kein zweiter, sich zwischen Jazz und Pop hin und her zu bewegen.
Mit seinen „lots of horns“ übernimmt Jost die Rolle des Crooners und präsentiert vorwiegend eigene Songs, in denen er sein Gespür für eingängige Melodien ebenso unter Beweis stellt wie sein Geschick als Arrangeur. Aber auch bekannte Pop-Hits und Swing-Standards bleiben nicht verschont und werden aufgemotzt und zu neuem Leben erweckt. Im Gepäck hat Jost dabei eine Bläser-Section, die aus fünf herausragenden Solisten besteht und zusammen, wenn sie will, massiv wie eine Big Band klingt.

"Raphael Jost ist ein Phänomen: Virtuoser Pianist, begnadeter Sänger, dazu ein gewitzter Charmeur." - Kulturtipp
