Salome Moana Trio

Velvety vocal jazz in an intimate trio - Solothurn jazz singer Salome Moana presents standards from the Great American Songbook in a new guise, together with singer and pianist Raphael Jost and double bassist Tobias Melcher. The three musicians move between tradition and modernity, between swing and bossa nova, between lyrical ballads and driving scat. Emotionally arranged, the songs offer a lot of room for improvisation and passionate interpretation.
