The first edition of the “New Generation #JazzLab” took place in 2021. The versatile, talented acts experienced an exciting and intensive week in St. Moritz. Below you find some information about the winners and the mentors of the premiere edition of the New Generation #JazzLab.

Concert Recording

Karoline Weidt found her way to jazz through classical music and is about to complete her Masters degree in Jazz vocals in Dresden. With her quartet she serves “lyrical vocal jazz” in an inviting and playful way. Weidt’s flawless voice dances with ease over the subtle sound and the complex arrangements of the quartet.

The Winners

Marc Oliver Poingt studied classical and jazz piano at the same time. No wonder his “MarcO Poingt Trio” combines styles and genres with playful ease. Together with Sam Ruff on drums and Baptiste Watiez on bass, Poingts piano playing blends into a modern sound with cinematic timbres.

Anyone who composes their own songs in the style of Lauryn Hill and Erykah Badu at the age of twelve knows where they are going. Carolina Müller a.k.a MISS C-LINE is one of our “New Generation #JazzLab” winners. Even if she’s busy with her Jazz vocal bachelor degree, she produces fresh hip hop with a deeply rooted jazz sensitivity. For the JazzLab she’ll be accompanied by her band. Yummie
