Brandnew CD "Beloved Boogie Woogie" together with Ladyva Vanessa Gnägi. So happy and proud of this amazing recordings we finished just in time for the Silvan Zingg International Boogie Woogie Festival 

Silvan Zingg and Ladyva (Vanessa Gnägi) present their joint 4-handed Boogie Woogie Piano program. The new album comes out on 22nd April 2017. It's called "BELOVED BOOGIE WOOGIE". It contains all 4-handed pieces, from classics to originals.
Last year in summer, the unique Swiss piano duo between the Ticino Boogie Woogie icon Silvan Zingg and the charming Bernese woman Ladyva was created. The good feeling between both artists on stage is transferred to the audience with joy and happiness.
The musicians were able to celebrate successful performances at festivals in the recent months: e.g. in Spain (Terrassa Boogie & Blues Reunion), France (Marcq-en-Barœul) and Switzerland (Boogie Night Chur).
Their charming interplay is precise, performed with virtuosity and playfulness. The features are harmonically reworked riffs, imaginative improvisations and rousing rhythmic bass riffs.
The next concert of Silvan Zingg and Ladyva will be at the International Boogie Woogie Festival in Lugano. Already for the 16th time, Zingg invites world-class pianists and world-champion Boogie Woogie dancers in Lugano. The program offers more than 24 hours of live-music and dance on three days (21st to 23rd April). The opening will be on Friday with the Gala Dinner at Hotel Eden in Paradiso. Afterwards on Saturday there will be dance classes and piano master-classes. In the evening, the Palazzo dei Congressi in Lugano will be brought to a boil. The finale will take place on the Lago di Lugano with live-music, a great brunch and a stunning view of the surroundings.

“One of the nicest gifts to arrive on the jazz piano scene in recent times, and we couldn’t be more delighted to welcome her.”
— Dick Hyman

Stephanie Trick “has come to practically dominate the stride piano field,” notes reviewer Jack Rummel. Harlem stride piano, which developed in the 1920s and ’30s, is an orchestral style of two-handed piano playing that not only swings, but is also technically demanding and exciting to watch. Louis Mazetier, a respected interpreter of this genre, writes in the Bulletin of the Hot Club of France that she has “won the esteem of specialists in the genre with wonderful interpretations of stride classics, James P. Johnson, Fats Waller, and Don Lambert (which she learned by ear). She plays these pieces with a punch that is matched by her precise interpretation.”

A classically trained pianist, Stephanie began playing piano at the age of five. During the time between her beginning years and high school, her piano teacher exposed her to early jazz, and the syncopation and swinging rhythm piqued her interest. While in college, it became clear to Stephanie that she wanted to pursue stride and classic jazz styles professionally.

With a swinging approach inspired by second-generation stride pianists such as Dick Hyman, Ralph Sutton, and Dick Wellstood (as well as the original Harlem ticklers, James P. Johnson, Willie “The Lion” Smith, and Fats Waller), and one that includes boogie woogie and blues from the late ‘20s, Stephanie was the 2012 recipient of the prestigious Kobe-Breda Jazz Friendship Award, and has performed in many parts of the United States and Europe in a variety of venues, including the Teatro Dal Verme in Milan, Italy, the KIG Dixieland Festival in Dresden, Germany, the Arbors Records Invitational Jazz Party, the Rochester International Jazz Festival, the Gilmore Keyboard Festival, and the Sacramento Music Festival. In 2008, 2010, and 2014, she was invited to perform at the international Stride & Swing Piano Summit in Boswil, Switzerland.
A serious student, dedicated to classic jazz and the stride piano tradition, she has played with a number of celebrated musicians, including Dick Hyman, Phil Flanigan, Rossano Sportiello, Allan Vaché, Louis Mazetier, Nicki Parrott, and Danny Coots. Graduating from college with a Bachelor of Arts in Music, she was inducted into the Phi Beta Kappa academic honor society at the University of Chicago.

Stephanie frequently performs with her husband, acclaimed pianist Paolo Alderighi, making fresh arrangements of songs from the Swing Era in a four-hands piano duo, and they currently have four albums together (see www.paoloandstephanie.com). In 2014, they played for the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall at the Edinburgh Jazz & Blues Festival. Stephanie also enjoys accompanying Grammy-nominated lyricist and vocalist Lorraine Feather in a show that features the music of James P. Johnson and other stride piano composers, set to original lyrics by Feather (see www.nouveaustride.com).

Stephanie has recorded ten albums and one DVD. Her solo “Live” CD was awarded the “New Talent Prize 2011” by the Hot Club of France. (CD track listings, video clips, ordering information, and more may be

Stephanie Trick (born 1987 in St. Louis, Missouri) is an American stride, ragtime and jazz pianist.
Trick began playing piano at the age of five. Her interest outside of classical music began at the age of ten, when her piano teacher introduced her to ragtime.She received her BA degree in music with honors from the University of Chicago in 2009. Trick demonstrates piano performance and composition styles of stride, ragtime and jazz piano from the 1900s to the 1940s. She emphasizes jazz standards, stride and boogie-woogie tunes with an accent on her specialty of Harlem stride.Trick and her husband, pianist Paolo Alderighi, reside in both St. Louis and Milan, Italy, his home town.

Sunday afternoon It's a Boogie Woogie Time in SENTIR EL BLUES, you know, hoy adelantamos un poco nuestro time y os proponemos unos momentos con Camille a la hora del vermuth ! ... creédme os va a saber a gloria !!  Please enjoy it.
Una de nuestras pianistas favoritas en uno de los nuestros géneros preferidos , como diría David Boogie Giorcelli....... otro fenomenal pianista de Boogie Woogie .....:   Keep on Boogie !!!!  Yeeeeeahhh !













Camille Howard (March 29, 1914 – March 10, 1993) was an American rhythm and blues pianist and singer, who first came to prominence in Roy Milton's Solid Senders in the 1940s. Her most successful recordings included "R. M. Blues" (as Milton's pianist, 1945), "Thrill Me" (as singer with Milton, 1947), and her own "X-Temporaneous Boogie" (1948).
Life and career

She was born in Galveston, Texas, the daughter of Cecilia (née Hines) and Samuel Browning. Her birth was registered as Deasy Browning, but she grew up using the name Camille Agnes Browning.[1] She learned piano and, during her teens, was a member of a local group, the Cotton Tavern Trio. By 1935 she was performing as a club musician in Galveston, as Camille Browning.

In the early 1940s, as Camille Howard, she moved from Texas to California. By 1943, she became a member of the Roy Milton Trio, who recorded for Lionel Hampton's Hamp-Tone label in 1945.[3] Milton's group then expanded to become a six- or seven-piece band, the Solid Senders, and they were signed by Art Rupe's Juke Box label, which later became Specialty Records. Howard's piano featured on singer and drummer Milton's first hit, "R. M. Blues", recorded in December 1945, on which "she plays seemingly unending, florid melodies with her right hand." The record reached number 2 on the Billboard R&B chart, and number 20 on the pop chart, in early 1946.

The record was the first of many R&B hits for Milton on the Juke Box and Specialty labels. Following its success, Howard also made her first recordings under her own name for the small Pan-American label in 1946. She stayed with Milton's Solid Senders, and was the featured piano player on all their hits through the late 1940s and early 1950s. She was the vocalist on their number 5 R&B hit in 1947, "Thrill Me".

After the success of "Thrill Me", Rupe began promoting her as a solo artist, and she had her first hit under her own name in 1948 with "X-Temporaneous Boogie", which reached number 7 on the R&B chart, and sold close to a quarter of a million copies. The track, a "roaring instrumental" in her characteristic "two-fisted thundering boogie style", was recorded with Milton and bassist Dallas Bartley, and was improvised at the end of her first recording session as leader, late on December 31, 1947; the following day, a ban on recordings imposed by the American Federation of Musicians came into effect.

She continued to play in Milton's band, and Milton was also a member of her Trio for recordings; they may have been married. Her own trio included Winston Williams (bass) and Walter Murden (drums), but she also performed occasionally with Milton, and toured with Jimmy Witherspoon, Little Willie Littlefield, Joe Liggins and others.

As well as continuing to record with Milton, Howard had 14 singles released under her own name by Specialty between 1948 and 1952, including both "storming boogies and sultry ballads".Her R&B chart hits included "You Don't Love Me" (1948), "Fiesta in Old Mexico" (1949), and "Money Blues (If You Ain't Got Money, I Ain't Got No Use For You)" (1951). She also recorded with Witherspoon, Lillie Greenwood, and others.

In early 1953, Howard signed with Federal Records, and released several more singles, but with diminishing success in the face of the growth of rock and roll. She signed with Vee-Jay Records in 1956, and that year toured with Roy Brown, Little Willie John, The 5 Royales, and Joe Tex, but she had no more hits.


She retired from the music business shortly afterwards. She maintained strong religious convictions, and in later years was unwilling to talk about her career in secular music.












Artist Biography by Bill Dahl in allmusic : 

Piano-tinkling chanteuses were quite the rage during the war years. But Camille Howard's two-fisted thundering boogie style, much like her Los Angeles contemporary, Hadda Brooks, was undoubtedly the equivalent of any 88s ace, male or female. Howard was part of the great migration from Texas to the West Coast. She was installed as pianist with drummer Roy Milton & the Solid Senders sometime during World War II, playing on all their early hits for Art Rupe's Juke Box and Specialty labels (notably the groundbreaking "R.M. Blues" in 1945).


Sensing her potential following the success of Milton's 1947 hit "Thrill Me" (with Howard's vocal), Rupe began recording her as a featured artist at the end of the year. Legend has it that Howard's biggest hit, the roaring instrumental "X-Temporaneous Boogie," was improvised at the tail-end of her first date as a leader (its flip, the torch ballad "You Don't Love Me," was a hit in its own right). Howard's vocal abilities were pretty potent too. Her "Fiesta in Old Mexico" was a hit in 1949, while "Money Blues," credited to Camille Howard & Her Boyfriends, registered strong coin in 1951. Howard cranked out storming boogies and sultry ballads for Specialty through 1953, then jumped from Federal to Vee-Jay before landing in Los Angeles for good. Howard's strong religious ties put a stop to her secular music career long ago.
