The Jōst Project is made of Philadelphia-area musicians including internationally renowned vibraphonist Tony Miceli of South Philadelphia, singer Paul Jost of Vineland, NJ and bassist Kevin MacConnell of Spring City, PA. They will be performing with drummer Anwar Marshall at Chris’. Their CD — Can’t Find My Way Home – was released by Dot Time Records. Two of their songs were selected for the BFM Jazz Digital’s compilation CD called “Experience This: Reinterpreted Rock Classics.” They are “Kashmir” and “Can’t Find My Way Home.”
This talented group is bringing attention to jazz by reaching into the “baby boomer” and subsequent generations that came of age with rock and roll, the Beatles, hard rock, and other genres which are rarely played by jazz groups. With raves from reviewers and music industry experts, Johan van Deeg wrote in Jazz in Europe, “The Jōst Project is without a doubt one of the most creative bands I have heard for years and vocalist Paul Jōst one of the best male jazz vocalists since Mark Murphy.” Michael Barbiero, record producer/engineer for The Allman Brothers, Joe Cocker, Guns N’ Roses, Metallica, Whitney Houston and many more, said, “You nailed it totally. This has me positively speechless.”
