About The Jōst Project

Devoted to interpreting class rock in a contemporary jazz format, The Jōst Project creates an exciting new connection between the many listeners for whom the music of the Beatles, Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, Aerosmith, Donovan, Simon and Garfunkel, the Beach Boys, and others. Their new CD—Can’t Find My Way Home was released in 2013 by Dot Time Records, a jazz/world label based in NY and Europe. The early buzz is already exciting! Some of the songs on the CD are “Walk This Way”, “Kashmir”, “Maybe I’m Amazed”, “Bridge over Troubled Water” and many others.

Initially formed by Tony Miceli (vibraphone) and Kevin MacConnell (acoustic bass), the seeds of this idea were planted in Tony’s 2005 recording Hippie Jazz. When Tony heard Paul sing, he felt such a strong musical connection that he invited him to be part of the group. Because of Paul’s strong musical influence and arranging talent, Tony and Kevin were convinced the group should have Paul’s name and they became The Jōst Project. Charlie Patierno is the drummer on the CD and often performs with them.

The combination fit and The Jōst Project grew in popularity. Tony’s vibraphone stirs echoes of the famed Modern Jazz Quartet with Milt Jackson. Kevin’s lyrical playing is an essential element and Paul invokes blues, mainstream, and scat styling in his unique introspective way, bringing out the emotions contained in the songs. It’s immediately evident that these skilled artists each bring their distinctive experience and approach to this blended collective.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place 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 effort that will help musicians 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 bottom right video ad). Thank you.
