ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Chris Conz was born on October 22, 1985 in Uster, Zurich. From the time he was 11 he has dedicated himself to the special jazz style of boogie woogie, which he discovered through Hamp Ruosch. Chris took lessons from Hamp, from whom he learned his first runs and patterns. In the process, he became influenced early on by musicians like Albert Ammons, Pete Johnson, Meade “Lux” Lewis, Axel Zwingenberger, and Vince Weber.

At age 16 he met Silvan Zingg, organizer of the International Boogie Festival, and soon Chris was making appearances as a surprise guest at Silvan’s festivals. After that he was invited to international festivals in different countries, sharing the stage with boogie woogie greats like Axel Zwingenberger, Vince Weber, Frank Muschalle, Bob Seeley.

Today Chris is not only a solo pianist, but on the road with his duo and trio as well. Already, he has been able to play for private and public concerts in the USA, Spain, France, Germany, England, Austria, Italy, and Switzerland.
In February 2008 Chris had the opportunity to perform as a surprise guest in three different casinos in Las Vegas.

In November 2004 Dave Ruosch left the group, Terry & the Hot Sox, and 19-year-old Chris took his place. Terry & The Hot Sox are the most popular and successful jive, swing, and R&R musicians in Switzerland and guarantee an ideal party atmosphere. Their stage presentation is excellent, the music perfect, and their energy infectious. In June 2009 Chris, along with Terry & The Hot Sox, accompanied the American singer, Wanda Jackson, who became world-famous in the 1960s because of her hit, “Let’s Have A Party.”
