ZKB Jazzpreis

Last week I had the chance to take part at the ZKB Jazzpreis. So I used this opportunity to present a brand-new program of my trio called punkt3. People liked it and punkt3 made it to the finals and received the 2nd Prize.

I’m so thankful that I could take part and present my music with my fellow musicians. And I’m so thankful to everybody at Moods and to the jury and the audience. It was a great pleasure to perform and it never felt like competition but more like a great festival featuring wonderful music and musicians.

Last but not least: A big fat congratulation to Marie Krüttli Trio who won the first Prize. They’re lovely and talented people and it was fun to share the bill with them at the finals. Check them out!
