Beat Kaestli Invitation Hybrid Multi-Channel & Stereo SACD
Beat Kaestli turns his attention to the Great American Songbook on
Invitation, his auspicious debut for Chesky Records. Recorded at St. Peter's
Church in Chelsea, this stirring collection of jazz standards is the perfect
showcase for Kaestli's hauntingly beautiful voice, which falls somewhere in the
Chet Baker-Kenny Rankin range. His voice is imbued with clarion articulation,

Rankin was doing.
Kaestli is doing it with rare style and verve. He is indeed a talent worthy of
