Robi Weber

piano

Switzerland

Robi Weber’s enthralling soul jazz shows strong influences from the blues, R&B, and gospel and is oriented toward pianists like Les McCann and Gene Harris – and, naturally, toward Oscar Peterson’s energetic piano playing. For years he has been regarded as one of Switzerland’s most distinguished and successful jazz pianists, whether as a soloist, in duos, or in his trio with Kalli Gerhards and Curt Treier. In 2009 he received the Swiss Jazz Award.
