John plays selections from his recent release "Jazz?". The new album sets modern rock tunes in a 1950's era jazz setting. Here's what jazz radio stations around the country are saying about "Jazz?" -
“With the wonderful backing of a trio, John has taken these rock songs and transformed them into compelling new musical short stories with a jazz subtext. Whether it be covering Counting Crows, Don Henley, or Pearl Jam, John Lester will get you hooked immediately. I’ve reviewed literally hundreds of CDs over the past year and I can honestly say that “Jazz?” is one of the most compelling I’ve heard from first note to the last. You want a great listening experience…look no further than John Lester Quartet.”
-Eric Cohen, WAER, Syracuse, New York
“To those who say Jazz is Dead: You haven’t heard John Lester!”
-Jon Norton, GLT Jazz
“The John Lester Quartet’s new release is titled “Jazz?” Songs include Eddie Vedder’s *Evenflow*, Don Henley’s *Sunset Grill*, Roger Waters’ *Money * and The Cure’s *A Letter to Elise*. On each track, singer/bassist John Lester strikes me as someone who knows how to tell the story, allowing the listener to hear these old songs in compelling new ways. That’s what jazz and good songs do best. So regarding that question mark in the title, the answer is “yes!” -Bob Rogers, taintradio.org, JazzWeek’s Internet Station of the Year 2011
“Rock found Jazz? or did Jazz find Rock?….great comments from our “Jazz in the Afternoon” listeners about John Lester’s new cd “Jazz?” -Bo Rodriguez, KMBH/KHID, Rancho Viejo, Texas
