About

Paul, Tony, and Kevin MacConnell make up the collective called the Jost Project initially formed by Tony and Kevin for the purpose of performing the rock music they grew up with in a jazz format. Tonight, guests Madison Rast, Doug Hirlinger and Chris Farr join Paul and Tony in The Jost Project repertoire that includes rock/pop classics as “In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida” (Iron Butterfly), “What a Day For a Day Dream” (John Sebastian; Loving Spoonful); “Sunshine Superman” (Donovan); “Walk This Way” (Aerosmith); “Tennessee Waltz” (Rod Stewart and Pee Wee King); “Come Together” and “And I Love Her” (The Beatles); “Kashmir” (Led Zepellin); “Bridge Over Troubled Waters” (Simon and Garfunkel); “Maybe I’m Amazed” (Paul McCartney); and “Can’t Find My Way Home” (Blind Faith). Give a listen to “Can’t Find My Way Home”, and you’ll get a taste of the unique sound of The Jost Project and their exceptional artistry, originality and imagination. Paul’s vocals are so soulful that music journalist Buster Maxwell wrote, "He nearly single-handedly reclaims the male voice as a valid and critically important jazz instrument." Peter McLaren in Jazz in Europe reviewed Jost’s recording Breaking Through and said, “Paul Jost has shown that he is a force to be reckoned with and an artist that deserves to be seen on all great festival stages worldwide.”...

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
