Beat Kaestli is an internationally acclaimed vocalist, songwriter, arranger and producer. In 1993 he moved to New York City and was awarded a scholarship to the Manhattan School of Music. While honing his craft alongside noteworthy Jazz performers, such as Jane Monheit, Jason Moran and Stefon Harris, he immersed himself in Manhattan’s fiercely competitive music scene, emerging as a seasoned performer. He now appears in clubs such as The Blue Note, Birdland, Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM), The Jazz Standard and The Stone, performing with Jazz greats, like Esperanza Spalding, Jon Hendricks, Gregoire Maret, Joel Frahm, Billy Drummond, Magos Herrera and Hendrik Meurkens. In 2005, Beat was the chosen vocalist for the Glenn Miller Orchestra, thrilling audiences in concert halls across the USA. Since the release of his acclaimed CD “Happy, Sad and Satisfied” in 2006, he’s been touring the world extensively with his own projects, showcasing his music in renowned clubs and at festivals across the US, Canada, Europe, Mexico and Central and South America. In 2007 he earned the Ella Fitzgerald Foundation Scholarship to complete his Masters Degree at the Aaron Copland School of Music, followed by the release of his European song tribute "Far From Home" (B+B Productions) in 2009. 2010 was highlighted by his major Jazz label debut "Invitation" (Chesky), a eclectic array of American Standards, which lead to a 12 month CD feature on Swiss Airlines in 2011, tours in the US, Canada, Costa Rica, Europe, Mexico and Brazil. Both his CDs “Far From Home” and “Invitation” were included in the official 2010 GRAMMY Selection for “Best Jazz Vocal Album”. March 2014 marks the release of Kaestli’s fifth CD, the French tribute “Collage” (Unit Records), as he continues his international touring with festivals in Brazil, Guatemala, Costa Rica, Africa, Asia and Australia and shows in Chile and Europe.

Kaestli introduces things with an angular original, intelligently designed and tuneful.
He finds a tense balance between innocent sweetness
and the erotic that makes this reimagining achingly compelling.

If Astrud Gilberto has a male counterpart, it's Beat Kaestli, a sublimely mellifluous singer
 whose work is smooth as satin, slow, easy, and savory.
—Acoustic Music

 

A tasty mix throughout, wannabes should note there was a lot of dues paying to get Kaestli
to this point and it’s what you have to do if you want to make it
and make it right.  A winner throughout.
