Swiss Jazz Award 2019 a Othella Dallas

The Marianne Racine Quartet, Patrick Bianco’s Cannonsoul, and Sam Burckhardt go through to the final of the 10th Swiss Jazz Award in Ascona.

Radio Swiss Jazz and JazzAscona have announced the finalists for the Swiss Jazz Award 2016 ‒ the only Swiss jazz award that is based on a public vote. In this, its tenth anniversary year, it is being supported by the Migros Culture Percentage. The following three ensembles emerged as finalists from the public vote:
 

Marianne Racine Quartet: With her new album of jazz standards and Swedish songs, “Sångbook 2”, the Swedish-Swiss pianist and singer Marianne Racine confirms her place among the leading singers on the Swiss jazz scene;

Sam Burckhardt: Sam Burckhardt left his native Basel for Chicago over 30 years ago. With his new album, "Fly Over", he pays virtuoso homage to the era of rhythm’n’blues, swing and the big band sounds of Count Basie and Duke Ellington;

Patrick Bianco’s Cannonsoul: On their new album, "Cannonsoul", the quintet led by 39-year-old Zurich saxophonist Patrick Bianco, remember and honour the great “Cannonball” Adderley with outstanding technique and captivating swing and soul.
 

These three ensembles will be taking part in the final of the Swiss Jazz Award 2016. They will make multiple live appearances at a variety of venues during the JazzAscona festival from 26 to 30 June as they compete for the votes of audience and jury. The Award will be presented on Thursday, 30 June, in Ascona.
