The singer and pianist Raphael Jost has been one of the greatest young talents on the Swiss jazz scene since winning the European Young Jazz Prize 2012 and the Swiss Jazz Award 2015. His powerful yet capable voice is unmistakable. He and bassist Raphael Walser met while studying jazz at the Zurich University of the Arts and have been working ever since.
They have performed together on stage countless times - including at the jazz festivals in Montreux, Cheltenham, Burghausen and St. Moritz. As a duo, they dedicate themselves to the music of Nat King Cole. Nat King Cole (1919-1965) grew up as the son of Baptist preacher Edward Coles and played the piano in his father's church at the age of four. Nat learned the piano from his mother, sang in his father's church choir, and soaked up jazz in the clubs of Chicago. At the age of 15 he dropped out of school and became a pianist. In the 50s, he was one of the hottest names, along with Frank Sinatra, Perry Como and Dean Martin. He is committed to fighting the ubiquitous racism, suing hotels that do not want to accommodate him or moving to a neighborhood in Los Angeles where until then only whites lived. At the same time, he tries to smooth the fronts, which gives him enmity on all sides.
