    Piano Off-Stage

    Tommy Weiss

    Blue notes are just as much part of the piano summit in Lucerne as Alberti bass figurations or the Neapolitan sixth. Jazz experts also perform: at Piano Off-Stage, the small but fine jazz festival within the festival. We have invited eight internationally acclaimed masters of improvisation who will enchant us late into the night with swing and boogie-woogie, tenderly dreamy or blazing and grooving performances, from Wednesday to Sunday. Their venue will be just where this art is shown to best advantage: in the atmospheric ambience of Lucerne’s bars and restaurants, in other words, “off stage.”

    Tommy Weiss

    From blues of the deepest black to fast-paced boogie-woogie and thrilling stride piano, Tommy Weiss has made a name for his inexhaustible wealth of ideas and funky grooves, his knack for swinging improvisation, and his refreshingly unconventional playing technique. Born in 1968 in Bensheim in southern Hesse, Germany, he makes the familiar standards sound new and excites listeners with his own virtuoso compositions. And on top of this, he also happens to be a gifed cartoonist.
