The Jost Project at Yorkfest Jazz Concert at Capitol Theatre
Paul Jost, vocal, harmonica and arrangements, Tony Miceli, vibes, and Kevin MacConnell, bass, plus Doug Hirlinger, drums make up the jazz collective initially formed by Tony and Kevin for the purpose of performing the rock music they grew up with in a jazz format. When Tony heard Paul, a multi-talented musician as well as vocalist, 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 Jost Project. Tonight, Chico Huff plays bass for Kevin. The ever-expanding repertoire of The Jost Project 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.
