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.
