When describing the unique vocalist and arranger Paul Jost, two words come to mind … “passionate storyteller”. To Paul, each lyric offers a message,
a story, and he conveys his own interpretation of those stories through his arrangements and the compassion in his performance.
While Paul is a multi-instrumentalist, composer and arranger, it is his vocal style that makes him a standout. Both critics and contemporaries alike say he is one of the best male jazz vocalists since Mark Murphy. Paul has performed worldwide with tours in Asia and Europe. Back home in the U.S, Paul is a regular on the New York Club scene and can been seen regularly on Festival stages including recent performances at Xerox Rochester International Jazz Festival and Exit Zero Jazz Festival.
“Jost's quick rise as a singer over the last six years …. is a testament to his innate talent, his precision as a musician, and his distinctive vocal sound.” - Suzanne Lorge / All About Jazz
“A creative force that deserves to be added to the list of great male jazz vocalists of all time.” - Peter McLaren / Jazz In Europe
