Quartet at Somethin' Jazz Club John Lester's latest release, "Jazz?", sets ten modern rock songs into a late 1950’s jazz context and brings together John’s love for both great contemporary songwriting, and the open improvisation of a jazz quartet.

"One of the most compelling albums I’ve heard, from first note to the last."
