About

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.
