Ernie's Organ Dream

The Organ-Trio for finest Swing & Jazz

When a brilliant Jazz guitarist and a Jazz Organist got to know each other through a singer with pep, a new organ trio quickly emerged. Beat Baumli is a big fan of the organ trio line-up and known for his virtuoso guitar playing. With Ernst Halter on the Hammond organ, the two have virtually the same musical roots. The subtle play by Reto Ohnsorg on the drums completes an official organ trio.

Alma Cilurzo, who introduced the three musicians to each other, joins the event as a guest singer.
Look forward to on jazz standards in the style of traditional organ trios and a voice that enchants you with songs from the Great American Songbook.
