Preview Party of The Jost Project's Upcoming CD


On Tuesday, April 16, from 7-10 PM, one month before their new CD is released internationally, Philadelphia –based The Jost Project is having a Preview Party concert at Chris’ Jazz CafĂ©, 1421 Sansom Street in Philadelphia.  There is a $10 cover charge for the party with a $5 charge for students.  Band members are internationally renowned vibraphonist Tony Miceli, vocalist/harmonicist Paul Jost, acoustic bassist Kevin MacConnell and drummer Charlie Patierno.  Their new CD, ”Can’t Find My Way Home”, will be released on May 15 by Dot Time Records, the jazz and world music label based in NY and Europe.  This talented group has a unique specialty.  They are reaching the generations that came of age with rock and roll and The Beatles and bringing their attention to jazz.  The group was initially formed by Miceli and MacConnell with the idea of performing rock music of the 60’s and 70’s in a jazz format.  When Jost joined the group, it was named The Jost Project.  All three members of the group are exceptionally talented and have had years of success independently.  Tony, a Philadelphia native, conducts master classes at the world-renowned Curtis Institute of Music in addition to performing and compiling CDs.  Peter Jost, a resident of Vineland NJ is a prolific composer in addition to being a performer and has composed over 40 CDs.  Kevin MacConnell, highly respected on the jazz scene, resides in Spring City, Pa and has made national and international performances with a variety of stars.  Don’t miss the party on April 16th. Come and hear The Jost Project present their unique jazz interpretations of such songs as Walk This Way and Maybe I’m Amazed before the CD is released in May.
