Raphael Jost Trio

Raphael Jost (*1988) grew up in northeastern Switzerland. He completed his Bachelor's and Master's degrees at the ZHdK (Zurich University of the Arts), majoring in jazz piano and singing as a minor subject. His instinct for catchy melodies, his virtuosity on the piano, and his skill as an arranger are outstanding qualities. Raphael was honoured with the Soloist Prize of the European Young Artists' Jazz Award in Burghausen (Germany) in 2012 and won the Swiss Jazz Award three years later.

With his own bands, Raphael Jost has performed at the Montreux Jazz Festival, Cheltenham Jazz Festival, Jaffa International Jazz Festival Tel Aviv, Bingen Swingt Festival, the Schaffhauser Jazzfestival, Festival Da Jazz St. Moritz and many more concerts across Central Europe, Sweden and Japan.
The Raphael Jost Quintet regularly plays for Swing dancers, including a concert at Rocky Balberna 2023.
