The international press calls him: "the Boogie Woogie ambassador from Switzerland". “Silvan plays as if he were from St. Louis – he could be my blues brother!” said Rock 'n' Roll legend Chuck Berry enthusiastically about his pianist.
Influenced by vintage recordings of black pianists, he started to play the piano in early childhood. After his studies at the university, he began his professional music career. Silvan has played in over 30 countries up to now (Europe, America, Asia, Middle East). His style is a mixture of fat grooves, a heavy portion of swing and incredible virtuosity performed with a lot of fantasy. He plays lively boogie-woogie, sensitive blues and classic jazz.
Silvan Zingg appeared and performed on stage with legends like Chuck Berry, Ray Charles, Kathie Webster, Sammy Price, Memphis Slim, Champion Jack Dupree, Tito Jackson, Pinetop Perkins and many more.
In summer 2011 Silvan Zingg performed at the worldfamous Montreux Jazz Festival as Special Guest of B.B. King.
Silvan Zingg Trio
Nuno Alexandre is a «slapbass» specialist. This fascinating way of playing the bass from the 1940 is mastered today by only few musicians. The drummer Valerio Felice has a subtile way of playing which adapts perfectly to Silvan’s piano play. The music flows in the blood of these gifted musicians and they prove it with their joyful performances and brilliant techniques on stage.
