Paul Jost

Paul Jost is an eclectic artist with great skill as a drummer, vocalist, arranger and composer in genres that range from jazz to country and more. Over the years, his musical talents extended to guitar and harmonica, but it’s his voice that truly makes him a standout. His vocals are so soulful that music critic 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 wrote Paul is … “is a force to be reckoned with and an artist that deserves to be seen on all great festival stages worldwide”. Michael Barbiero, producer/engineer/songwriter, who has worked on projects for such legends as John Lennon, Whitney Houston and Metallica, thinks that Paul Jost brings vocal styling to a new level. “Once in a great while an artist comes along whose talent and vision allow all that we knew to be viewed through a new facet. Paul is such an artist.”

Jazz in Europe and All About Jazz - Peter McLaren

• A creative force that deserves to be added to the list of great male jazz vocalists of all time. With “Breaking Through”, 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. This album is one of the best jazz CD’s I’ve had the pleasure of listening to so far this year, highly recommended.

BBC Radio Ulster – Linley Hamilton

• I was blown away by Paul’s performance. He is right up there! Not only great scatting, but sings with a big, big range, and magnificent articulation while scatting with accuracy and on pitch. Philadelphia Inquirer – A.D
