In case you’re new to The Jōst Project, we’re a band devoted to jazz and hope to reach a whole new generation of rock fans in a style that will introduce them and pull them into our world. On this CD — “Can’t Find My Way Home” — we switch things up a bit. Instead of using jazz standards as our base, we interpret rock-related “standards” in a contemporary jazz format. What’s our goal? To create a whole new connection between the music of the Beatles, Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, Aerosmith, Donovan, Simon and Garfunkel, the Beach Boys, and jazz. We love it when fans of such songs as “Walk This Way” hear it in a new way. That’s what we hope will happen for you.

So, if jazz is something you didn’t know much about before – thanks for giving it a try with our CD. If you’re a jazz fan, we hope you’ll appreciate this diverse repertoire of songs performed in the modern jazz idiom. And, for our enthusiastic fans … thanks for sticking by us and telling your friends!

Paul, Tony and Kevin 

You nailed it totally. This has me positively speechless.
